The Lost City of the Monkey God
by Douglas Preston
For hundreds of years, legends have told of an ancient, lost city hidden in the Honduran rainforest, so sacred anyone who disturbed it would die. In 2012 a team of scientists braved the dense jungles and found not only a city, but an entire lost civilization. This true story tells of ancient curses, modern technology, academic controversies, and a tragic medical mystery. We will tour the Ancient Latin America gallery and discuss the art and accomplishments of past civilizations.
About: Join the Book Club—a docent-led two-hour experience—to understand the collection in new ways and make new friends. Books are selected to connect with the museum’s galleries and specific works of art. Read the book and discuss with fellow readers.
The Book Club meets on the last Saturday and Wednesday of the month from 1 to 3pm.
Admission: Free with museum admission. RSVP required.
