Book Discussion: "Dark Tide, The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919" by Stephen Puleo

On January 15, 1919, a 50-foot-tall steel tank filled with 2.3 million gallons of molasses  collapsed on Boston's waterfront, disgorging its contents as a 15-foot-high wave of molasses that at its outset traveled at 35 miles an hour. It demolished wooden homes, even the brick fire station. The number of dead wasn't known for days. It would be years before a landmark court battle determined who was responsible for the disaster.

Book Discussion Group meets the third Tuesday of every month at 1:30.

Join us each month for a lively discussion on a book chosen by the group.  Books are available at the Circulation Desk. No registration necessary.
