For those of you who missed it, the people have spoken --- that is, on the issue of which book we should all read for our trial run at a One Book One City event. The winner was Stephen Puleo's "Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919." If you are unfamiliar with Puleo's work and would like a little sample, you can catch him at Brookline Booksmith on Monday at 7 p.m. where he'll be discussing his “A City So Grand: The Rise of an American Metropolis, Boston 1850-1900,'' which details the period in which Boston came into its own as a world-class city.
