Seekers Book Club
Our current Book is:
Wind, Sand and Stars, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery ~ Aug 17, Sept 7 & 21, Oct 5
The exciting realism of air adventure - through the treacherous passes of the Pyrenees, above the Sahara, along the snowy ramparts of the Andes - combined with lyrical prose and the soaring spirit of a philosopher makes these memoirs one of the most popular books about flying ever written. The author was a pioneer pilot in commercial aviation. During World War II he served in a French air squadron and in the summer of 1944 disappeared over the Mediterranean while returning from a reconnaissance mission. He has been called "the Joseph Conrad of the air," and this account of his experiences received the Grand Prix of the Academie Francaise.
Our next book is:
Me & White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor, by Layla Saad ~ starting October 19, 2020
Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor leads readers through a journey of understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy, so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on black, indigenous and people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too. The book goes beyond the original workbook by adding more historical and cultural contexts, sharing moving stories and anecdotes, and includes expanded definitions, examples, and further resources.
This book club is designed to provide an opportunity to share in community, lively discussion and self exploration. It will provide a casual and relaxed environment during which we can exchange ideas and experiences through the reading of selected books.
Anyone who is interested in social interaction and self exploration is invited to join.
