Our Library Book Club selection for April is “Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation.”  This 2013 non-fiction book by American author Dan Fagin focuses on the dumping of industrial pollution by chemical companies into Toms River, New Jersey, beginning in 1952 through the 1980s, and the epidemiological investigations of a cancer cluster that subsequently emerged there. The book won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction, the 2014 Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism, and the 2014 National Academies Communication Award.  If you’d like to join the book club please contact the library.
