The Invention of Wings

We had a wonderful discussion on this book. Everyone agreed that it provided new insights into the institution of slavery. We would highly recommend it to any book group.

Caminar

We had the author visit and do programs for groups of all ages. Everyone for preschoolers to adults enjoyed her talk. She was extremely personable and made the afternoon a huge success. We all enjoyed reading Caminar, which is a novel in verse about guerilla warfare in Guatemala.

The Astronauts Wives Club

A fairly informative read about what the astronauts' wives went through while their husbands trained and blasted into space. However, the book does not delve deeply into any of the issues it mentions and spreads itself too thing by covering all of the wives up through the Apollo program. More depth would have been appreciated. Nonetheless, we had a good discussion about it.
