History Book Club

Wednesday June 15, 2016
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM

Our selection this month is Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow.

In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is “a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.”    Barnes & Noble

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers welcome.

Morning Book Group

Thursday June 9, 2016
10:00 AM until 11:15 AM

Our selection this month is Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland.

“Louis Comfort Tiffany staffs his studio with female artisans–a decision that protects him from strikes by the all-male union–but refuses to employ women who are married. Lucky for him, Clara Driscoll’s romantic misfortunes insure that she can continue to craft the jewel-toned glass windows and lamps that catch both her eye and her imagination.” Publisher Description

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers welcome.
