A fresh take on the 1915 sinking of the majestic Cunard liner by a German U-20 submarine. A riveting narrative of one of the most terrible marine disasters in history.


May 4, 2016


Handmaid's Tale
by Margaret Atwood

A powerful cautionary tale of the near-future, in which women are strictly controlled in the Republic of Gilead, formerly the United States. A chilling (and hopefully not prophetic) story about life in a puritanical theocracy.


Look for future discussion titles to be posted later this spring.
