History Book Club

Wednesday December 17, 2014
6:30 PM


Welcome to the first meeting of our newly-formed History Book club. Our first selection is Killer Angels by Michael Shaara.

Portraits of Lee, Longstreet, and other Civil War leaders are interwoven with historical detail to provide a fictional recreation of the bloody battle at Gettysburg. A superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant. In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life.Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Shattered futures, forgotten innocence, and crippled beauty were also the casualties of war.  Publisher summary.

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Sign up today!

Our selection this month is The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro

Boston painter Claire Roth has survived financially by painting reproductions, so when influential gallery owner Aiden Markel arrives with a bizarre proposal–her own show if she will forge a copy of a Degas, one of the pictures stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum–she says yes. As she works, Claire and Aiden become lovers, but she doesn’t tell him about her discovery that the stolen Degas is itself a copy. This knowledge is Claire’s lifeline when the finished forgery is discovered, Aiden and then Claire are both arrested, and only she can save them.

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers welcome.
