Thunderstruck – The Convergence of Two Stories that Shook the World

November 7, 2006

Erik Larson has a knack for creating incredibly vivid accounts of little-known or entirely-forgotten historical events that seem obscure to modernity. He recreated the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair in “The Devil in the White City” and he’s given a 1902 murder in London the same treatment in his latest work. Erik Larson will join us this hour to discuss “Thunderstruck” (Crown, 2006).
Erik Larson will appear for a book signing at 7pm this evening at Borders (Preston and Royal in Dallas). Call (214)363-1977 for more information.
