Hoffman’s ‘Savage Harvest’ discussed at library April 16 

The Paso Robles Library’s book group title for April is “Savage Harvest” by Carl Hoffman, the story about the mysterious disappearance of Michael Rockefeller in New Guinea in 1961.


Was Rockefeller killed and ceremonially eaten by a local tribe of warriors? Was he drowned as the Dutch government ruled?

Hoffman retraces Rockefeller’s steps, combining history, art, colonialism, adventure and ethnography to solve this decades-old mystery.

Join in the discussion on Thursday, April 16 at 7 p.m. in the Library Conference Room.

The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
