Celebrated author Erik Larson will speak at Monmouth University on Monday, March 28, 2016, from 7 – 8:30 p.m. in Pollak Theatre. This event is free and open to the public.
Erik Larson has written five books that have appeared on the New York Times‘ bestseller list, including such critically acclaimed works as In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin and The Devil in the White City. Mr. Larson’s most recent book is Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, which deals with the implications of the sinking of the Lusitania by German torpedoes in May 1915 and will be the subject of his talk.
