Canton Seniors Book Discussion group will meet on Wednesday, October 26 from 2:00-3:00p.m. in Canton Public Library's Group Study Room A. This month's reading selection is:
The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America by Erik Larson. Architect Daniel Hudson Burnham overcame tremendous obstacles and tragedies as he and others transformed swampy Jackson Park into the White City for the World's Columbian Exposition 1893 in Chicago, while Henry H. Holmes used the attraction of the great fair and his own satanic charms to lure scores of young women to their deaths.
Copies of The Devil in the White City will be distributed on September 28 at the book discussion. Beginning September 29, ask for a copy of The Devil in the White City at the Adult Reference Desk.
