Charleston Library Society Book Club ~ David Grann’s “The Wager”

January 17 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am


CLS Book Club is FREE, in-person, and open to the public—whether you’ve finished the book, are thinking about starting it, or couldn’t make it past the half-way point. All that is required is an RSVP via the form below.

Offered a few times a year, the CLS Book Club seeks to explore a wide range of topics, authors and diversity within its book selections. Under this objective, the Book Club also offers space for conversation, perspectives and discourse.

About the book:
The Wager is a grand tale of human behavior at the extremes told by one of our greatest nonfiction writers. Grann’s recreation of the hidden world on a British warship rivals the work of Patrick O’Brian, his portrayal of the castaways’ desperate straits stands up to the classics of survival writing such as The Endurance, and his account of the court martial has the savvy of a Scott Turow thriller. As always with Grann’s work, the incredible twists of the narrative hold the reader spellbound.

For a copy of the book, check out our catalog here, or shop local at Buxton Books.
