Next meeting November 27-Nightingale

At our October 30th program, we discussed The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan. All felt this was a book that covered a topic little of us knew about and serves as an important work on women's history.  Personally, I didn't like how it jumped around the timeline and the author's technique of compartmentalizing the information to demonstrate the methods employed at the site made it difficult to engage in the book. Overall though, the group liked it and appreciated learning about tubealloy and the Oak Ridge, Tennessee.  

We also started picking our books for next year.  So far, we have six fiction titles chosen.  At our next meeting we will pick our last two fiction  and three non-fiction books.  Titles can still be suggested - please forward me your suggestions by our next meeting which is Monday, November 27th at 3pm.  We will meet in the large meeting room.  Feel free to park in front of the meeting room entrance since the doors will be unlocked.  We will be discussing Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.  Books are available for pickup at the library and the discussion sheets are available at the library desk or online.  Here's a summary of the book: "The nightingale tells the story of two sisters, separated by years and experiences, by ideals, passion, and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France."
