In August, we’ll be reading The Children’s Blizzard by David Laskin. In January 1888, an unprecedented winter storm swept across the midwest, striking without warning out of a clear sky. In this riveting history of disaster and survival, Laskin explores the unforgiving lives of pioneers, early attempts at forecasting by the Army Signal Corps’ scandal-ridden weather service, and the freaky physics of extreme cold.
