Book lovers, you have heard the old adage "Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it!" We meet the second Monday of every month from 7pm to 8:30pm in the Writers' Corner at Village Books to chat, discuss, and dissect the most current and interesting history being written. We will cover all eras and topics in our quest to "know history". Join us! Authors do NOT attend.

On March 25, 1911, as workers were getting ready to leave for the day, a fire broke out in the Triangle Shirtwaist factory in New York's Greenwich Village. Within minutes it spread to consume the building's upper three stories. Firemen who arrived at the scene were unable to rescue those trapped inside: their ladders simply weren't tall enough. People on the street watched in horror as desperate workers jumped to their deaths.
