FRIDAY, MARCH 25

ERIK LARSON

Journalist Erik Larson finds thrillers in real-world history in his novelistic nonfiction. Award-winning best-seller The Devil in the White City reported on America's first serial killer against the backdrop of the 1893 World's Fair, while In the Garden of Beasts portrayed the intrigue surrounding America's last ambassador to Germany before World War II. Larson's most recent book, Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, goes back to the first World War, exploring both sides—hunter and prey—of the famed torpedoing of the British ocean liner by a German U-boat in 1915. At Jones Chapel, courtesy of Quail Ridge Books and Meredith College Friends of the Library, Larson reads and signs Dead Wake; admission is $5, though you have to buy a copy of the book to get into the signing line. —Zack Smith
