Not For Men Only
First off, let's say this book club is open to anyone of any gender. The reading choices will be books that generally appeal to male readers. Members or interested attendees should send their name and email address to Jim Parina at firstname.lastname@example.org so that they can be notified of any last minute changes. The group meets the second Monday of the month at 7 p.m.
- November 9: A Path Appears, Nichlas Kristof
- December 14: Virgil Wander, Leif Enger
- January 11: The Home That Was Our Country, Alia Malek
With scrupulous research and on-the-ground reporting, Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn explore how altruism affects us, what are the markers for success, and how to avoid the pitfalls.
The first novel in ten years from award-winning, bestselling author Leif Enger, Virgil Wander is a sweeping story of new beginnings against all odds that follows the inhabitants of a hard luck town in their quest to revive its flagging heart.
At the Arab Spring's hopeful start, Alia Malek returned to Damascus to reclaim her grandmother's apartment, which had been lost to her family since Hafez al-Assad came to power in 1970. Its loss was central to her parent's decision to make their lives in America.
