Cottage Book Club: Terror In the City of Champions

The Cottage Book Club of “mostly mature” adult (when we have to be) women (although not necessarily required) welcomes everyone, whether or not they have read the book. We’re friendly, of all ages, love to laugh and sometimes cry. We talk strictly about the book, and afterwards, a little about the author. Karen Langs is the facilitator and begins discussion with a general question. “One comment at a time, please."

The group meets the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 10:00 a.m. for an hour, more or less. The Cottage Book Club meets year round and is open to anyone who wishes to join for a day or a season.

A critically acclaimed New York Times Bestseller about a championship city haunted by a deadly wave of racist terror Detroit, mid-1930s: In a city abuzz over its unrivaled sports success, gun-loving baseball fan Dayton Dean became ensnared in the nefarious and deadly Black Legion. The secretive, Klan-like group was executing a wicked plan of terror, murdering enemies, flogging associates, and contemplating armed rebellion. The Legion boasted tens of thousands of members across the Midwest, among them politicians and prominent citizens--even, possibly, a beloved athlete. Award-winning author Tom Stanton has written a stunning tale of history, crime, and sports.
