Book Discussion Group

September 13 - The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery by Eric Foner. A man of considered words and deliberate actions, Lincoln navigates the dynamic politics deftly, taking measured steps, often along a path forged by abolitionists and radicals in his party. Lincoln rises to leadership in the new Republican Party by calibrating his politics to the broadest possible antislavery coalition. This book will be the community read for the American Presidents' Film and Literary Festival in October and a Skype with the author will be held later in September. THIS WILL BE HELD IN THE CONFERENCE ROOM, NOT THE MEETING ROOM.
October 11 - The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. As Whitehead re-creates the unique terrors for black people in the pre-Civil War era, his narrative weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction, Oprah's Book Club selection.
November 8 - Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. A chance encounter with a stranger leaves Avery Stafford deeply shaken. Avery's decision to learn more about the woman's life will take her on a journey through her family's long-hidden history.

December 13 - Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. In a society in which books are outlawed, Montag, a regimented fireman in charge of burning the for bidden volumes, meets a revolutionary school teacher who dares to read. Suddenly he finds himself a hunted fugitive, forced to choose not only between two women, but between personal safety and intellectual freedom. This classic novel will be a new Netflix film!
