"Dark Tide" author Stephen Puleo will be at Brookline Booksmith tonight to discuss his new book, "A City So Grand," a look at Boston's development and rise in the second half of the 19th century.
This is probably old news to the local literary types out there, but Boston.com readers chose "Dark Tide" — Puleo's tale of the North End's wildly improbably flood of molasses — as this summer's citywide read. This month, he'll chat with readers about the book on Boston.com. In the meantime, chat about the book on Twitter using the tag #1b1b.
