The Guild book group will discuss Rising Tide, The Great Mississippi Flood Of 1927
And How It Changed America, by John M. Barry (1997). describes this book as "An American epic of science, politics, race, honor, high society, and the Mississippi River, Rising Tide tells the riveting and nearly forgotten story of the greatest natural disaster this country has ever known -- the Mississippi flood of 1927. The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever."

All Guild members who have read the book are welcome to attend.
