Read in June, 2008

Really, really fascinating account of the creation of the Chicago World’s Fair. It ties it together with a murder mystery of sorts that I honestly couldn’t have cared less about, but the book itself is extremely accessible and a fun read, especially since I wasn’t too familiar with the World’s Fair. Now I want to read about the one in Paris.
