Bookmarked: A Zoom Book Club

Bookmarked is an online book club hosted by the York County History Center in York, PA. Four times a year, they select a book focusing on an historical event or a notable place, person, or time in York County’s history. Then readers join a group Zoom call from the comfort of their own homes to discuss the book and go beyond the pages. 2023’s first Bookmarked event took place on February 27, and featured award-winning author Erik Larson’s The Splendid and the Vile, which provides an illuminating look at Churchill’s first year in office during the Blitz.
