The QRB Book Club
This meeting's book for discussion is Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea by Gary Kinder.
The QRB Book Club usually meets the last Sunday of the month at 4:30 pm to discuss a current popular work of fiction or nonfiction. Today's meeting is in lieu of the May meeting which would have been on Memorial Day, and club will meet again on June 30. May. New members are always welcome. See other months' selections here.
Originally published in 1998 and a best seller in its hardcover and paperback publications, Gary Kinder's Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea tells the story of the sinking of the SS Central America, a side-wheel steamer carrying nearly six hundred passengers returning from the California Gold Rush, two hundred miles off the Carolina coast in September 1857.
