Men's Book Club News
We have 14 current active members meeting monthly via Zoom since March and now via the Club's GoToMeeting platform.
Although our selections mostly have been history and biography, we have also read and greatly enjoyed the novels of Keith Yocum, who is one of our members. Keith's books have great characters, gripping stories, and are readily available from Amazon.
The two most recent books our group has read and discussed are:
> The Witches: Suspicion, Betrayal, & Hysteria in 1692 Salem, by Stacy Schiff (2016) 512 pages – many copies available in the CLAMS system, including at least one eBook,
> Ardennes 1944: The Battle of the Bulge, by Anthony Beevor (2015) 475 pages – many copies available in the CLAMS system, including electronic copies.
Under consideration for November are:
> Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam, by Mark Bowden (2017) 608 pages – many copies available in the CLAMS system, including electronic copies;
> The Enduring Shore: A History of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket, by Paul Schneider (2001) – many copies available in the CLAMS system, including at least one eBook
> The Oregon Trail: A New American Journey, by Rinker Buck (2016) 464 pages - many hard copies available in the CLAMS system - no Kindle copies in CLAMS
There is also strong support for mixing in works of fiction into our selections, especially after the success with Keith's books.
Many thanks to you and the other officers for keeping the Club active and visible in these trying times.
