Now Boston Does It, Too

In June, The Boston Globe revealed a shocking secret; their city has never had a One Book program.

So, the Globe held a contest that asked readers to vote on a book every Bostonian whould read.

The winner is Dark Tide by Stephen Puleo, a book that chronicles “…one of Boston’s darkest chapters…a gripping narrative about the great North End molasses flood [a molasses tank collapsed] of 1919” and published by local publisher, Beacon Press.

The author will appear later next month at the Boston Public Library.

    Dark Tide was a very interesting read. What a weird (but preventable) event.

    I first learned about this when I read Dennis Lehane’s “The Given Day.” Fascinating.
