Description:
 Join the Southwest Book Club this month to discuss The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon by David Grann. In 1925, renowned British explorer Col. Percy Harrison Fawcett embarked on a journey to find the city of Z, site of an ancient Amazonian civilization that may or may not have existed. Fawcett, along with his grown son Jack, never returned. But that didn't stop countless others from venturing into the jungle to find Fawcett or the city. Among the wannabe explorers is Grann, a staff writer for the New Yorker, who has bad eyes and a worse sense of direction. By interweaving the great story of Fawcett with his own investigative escapades in South America and Britain, Grann provides an in-depth and colorful tale of true adventure.

Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend. The book club meets monthly at the Southwest Branch Library. For more information, please call 407.835.7323 or email southwest@ocls.info.
