Rail Readers Book Club meets Feb. 20

February 16, 2019

The Las Cruces Railroad Museum hosts a book club at 11am on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. On February 20, 2019, we will discuss Part I of the book Appetite for America. This definitive biography of Fred Harvey was written by Stephen Fried, who obtained exclusive access to many Harvey family documents.  

Fred Harvey was much more than a man – he built an empire that had lasting impact on many aspects of life in America today. He was known as the father of commercial cultural tourism. He also opened the way for women to have careers in the hospitality industry.

Part II of the book will be discussed at the March 20, 2019, meeting of the book club.

The museum is located at 351 N. Mesilla Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm and Saturday 9am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at: http://las-cruces.org/museums or call (575) 528-3444.
