Plymouth's Book Club - Lusitania

Monday, June 12, 7:00 p.m., in the lounge

With his remarkable new work of nonfiction, Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, award-winning author Erik Larson ushers us aboard the Lusitania as it begins its tragic and final crossing. Setting sail - over 100 years ago - on May 1, 1915, from New York, the Lusitania was immense and luxurious, the fastest civilian ship then in service, and carried a full roster of passengers, including a record number of infants and children. The passengers were surprisingly at ease, even though that morning a German notice had appeared in the city’s newspapers warning that travelers sailing on British ships "do so at their own risk." Though the notice didn’t name a particular vessel, it was widely interpreted as being aimed at the Lusitania. The idea that a German submarine could sink the ship struck many passengers as preposterous, a sentiment echoed in Cunard’s official response to the warning: "The truth is that the Lusitania is the safest boat on the sea. She is too fast for any submarine. No German war vessel can get her or near her." Dead Wake switches between hunter and hunted, allowing readers to experience the crossing, and the disaster itself, as it unfolds. Rich in atmosphere and thrillingly told and full of surprises, Dead Wake captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster whose intimate details and true meaning have long been obscured in the mists of history. Join us as we explore the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania! Our selection is available at Schuler Books on the Book Club Table with a 20% discount.
