Join us for a librarian-led book discussion about our 2024 One Book New Canaan Community Read, The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder by David Grann.

The Wager recounts the unbelievable but true story of the doomed adventure taken by those aboard the HMS Wager. This Royal Navy ship was meant to sail the world and plunder Spanish treasure, but in 1741 it was shipwrecked while trying to sail around Cape Horn.
