A Great Book!

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson, 2003, is an outstanding nonfiction book I enjoyed very much.

The white city is the nickname of the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893 and the devil was a serial killer in the city during that time.

There is a lot of history to be learned from reading this book. Its about how leading architects of the period in the United States and the city of Chicago tried to outdo the worlds fair in Paris, France when the Eiffel Tower was built.

This book should be a must read. Enjoy!

Return here on Friday, July 7 for another post.

Have a good day!
