Derby Library to host book discussion

      DERBY - The Derby Public Library has scheduled its next Lunchtime Book Discussion for
12:30 p.m Sept. 24. 
       The selected title is The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. This engrossing nonfiction novel is based on real characters and events. 

         Set during Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair, it intertwines the true tales of Daniel H. Burnham, the architect behind the fair, and Dr. Henry H. Holmes, the serial killer who lured his victims to their deaths in his elaborately constructed "Murder Castle." 

Larson makes the magic, romance, and mystery of the Gilded Age come alive in this chilling tale.  

Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.  Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.”   

Dessert and beverages will be provided.  Registration is requested.   

For more information, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St., call 203-736-1482, or visit www.derbypubliclibrary.org.
