The next Fishing Creek Farm Book Club discussion will be Tuesday, July 13, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.  We will discuss the book The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore. The meeting on the deck at the club house.  If the weather is bad, we will meet inside.

Please join us for the discussion. We have no rules except to enjoy discussing books of interest with our neighbors!

The book we have selected is The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore.

Praise for The Last Days of Night:

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST

Winner of The American Library Association’s Reading List Council’s Prize for Best Historical Fiction

“A fascinating portrait of American inventors . . . Moore crafts a compelling narrative out of [Paul] Cravath’s cunning legal maneuvers and [Nikola] Tesla’s world-changing tinkering, while a story line on opera singer Agnes Huntington has the mysterious glamour of The Great Gatsby. . . . Moore weaves a complex web. . . .  He conjures Gilded Age New York City so vividly, it feels like only yesterday.”Entertainment Weekly

“A model of superior historical fiction . . . Graham Moore digs deep into long-forgotten facts to give us an exciting, sometimes astonishing story of two geniuses locked in a brutal battle to change the world. . . . [A] brilliant journey into the past.”The Washington Post

Everyone is invited to join the discussions. Please contact Susan Magazine via email or phone (301-213-1799) if you would like to join the group.
