One Book Two Villages is a celebration of reading and community. The Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District is excited to continue the tradition of excellence with this year’s title selections.
 

Adult Selection: DEAD WAKE

The 2015 adult book selection is Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, by Erik Larson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author and master of narrative nonfiction. Larson has the talent of being both a gifted writer and historian, weaving the two together with drama, emotion and suspense. His bestselling books include The Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Beasts. We are so excited to bring our community an author and book that will captivate imaginations and give us a brief glimpse into what has been a long obscured part of history.
