The awfully famous deaths include such well-known people as King Henry VIII, whose body reportedly exploded in his coffin, Edgar Allen Poe, who might have been infected with rabies, and Marie Curie, a phenomenal female scientist killed by exposure to her own science discovery. While this book may be non fiction, the information is presented in such a way that it is both highly informative and entertaining.
For this book club selection, we will have an extra special discussion. Both the author, Georgia Bragg, and the illustrator, Kevin O'Malley, have agreed to video conference with our discussion group! This discussion will take place on November 13th. In order to participate, students will have to read the book and submit a review. Come by the library for all the details.
