Join the Bangor League for a discussion of Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age by Annalee Newitz.
In Four Lost Cities, acclaimed science journalist Annalee Newitz takes readers on an entertaining and mind-bending adventure into the deep history of urban life. Investigating across the centuries and around the world, Newitz explores the rise and fall of four ancient cities, each the center of a sophisticated civilization: the Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük in Central Turkey, the Roman vacation town of Pompeii on Italy’s southern coast, the medieval megacity of Angkor in Cambodia, and the indigenous metropolis Cahokia, which stood beside the Mississippi River where East St. Louis is today.
The book group meets at Seasons restaurant in Bangor. If you would like to join by Zoom, please email Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
