The Big Pine Book Lovers Book Club invites you to their next monthly meeting on Saturday, June 15th to discuss The Wager, by David Grann.

On 28 January 1742, a rickety ship washed up on the coast of Brazil. Inside were thirty emaciated men with an extraordinary tale to tell. They were sailors on the Wager, a British vessel with a secret mission. While they had been chasing a treasure-filled Spanish galleon, the Wager wrecked on a desolate island. Marooned for months, the men built the flimsy craft and sailed for more than a hundred days across storm-wracked seas. They were greeted as heroes. Six months later, a decrepit vessel with three castaways telling a very different story landed on the coast of Chile. They claimed the thirty sailors were mutineers. Accusations of tyranny, treachery, and murder flew. The Admiralty convened a court martial to determine who was telling the truth and who would hang.

All are welcome to attend the discussion. For more information please contact
