Our Book Club's Selection for May

 In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks, and Giants of the OceanThere are countless stories told by mariners and seamen of ships that have been battered and have —sometimes—survived encounters with these giants of the sea. Detailing some of the most well-known of these stories, Casey continues to explore the impact these waves have had on man in more recent times by juxtaposing marine scientists’ efforts to deconstruct and understand these tsunami, such as the one that devastated parts of Southeast Asia in 2004, with the surfers and other daredevils who willingly trek the globe in search of the ultimate thrill.

The Mt. Pleasant Library Book Club meets the first Monday of every month at 7 p.m. at La Casa, located right next door to the interim library. For more information, please contact Ana Elisa de Campos Salles at anaelisa.decampossalles@dc.gov.
