Truro Library Book Group – “The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder” by David Grann

January 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Truro Library Book Group
January selection is The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder by David Grann

Books will be available at the circulation desk a few weeks before the discussion.

“An engrossing survival story…THE WAGER is a knotty tale of moral compromises and betrayal and a metaphysical inquiry into the elusive nature of truth and the power of stories to shape history and our perceptions of reality. For Grann, telling the story of the shipwreck and its scandalous aftermath was a chance to excavate not just a rousing adventure, but to explore how history is constructed, who writes it and what gets distorted or left out. After six years of research—including his own harrowing journey to the inhospitable island where the castaways washed up—Grann has delivered what will likely endure as the definitive popular account.” — The New York Times

The Book group is now meeting inside (or outside when possible) the Library. If you would like to join virtually, please email Maggie to receive a Zoom invite.
