LATITUDES AND ATTITUDES 2016-2017 BOOK LIST

  • September 15, 2016 7:00 PM Fordlandia by Greg Grandin Leader: MarySue Wildman With “Fordlandia,” Greg Grandin, a professor of history at New York University, tells a haunting story of Henry Ford’s failed endeavor to export Main Street America to the jungles of Brazil. Fordlandia was a commercial enterprise, intended to extract raw material for the production of motor cars, but it was framed as a civilizing mission, an attempt to build the ideal American society within the Amazon. As described in this fascinating account, it was also the reflection of one man’s personality — arrogant, brilliant and very odd.
  • November 17, 2016 7:00P.M. Hidden America by Jeanne Marie Laska Leader: Lynn Proctor Laska’s, a writer for GQ magazine, spent time shadowing people employed in jobs often given little if any consideration by the average person. Such positions as coal mining, truck drivers and working on an Alaskan oil rig are considered. Laska spends considerable time with the workers as she shadows them during and sometimes after work. She gives a vivid description of the jobs and people who have them which makes for an enjoyable read and at the same time is conscious raising and thought provoking.
  • January 19, 2017 7:00 P.M. The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks Leader: Peg Hunter Geraldine Brooks takes on one of literature’s richest and most enigmatic figures: a man who shimmers between history and legend. The Secret Chord provides new context for some of the best-known episodes of King David’s life while also focusing on others, even more remarkable and emotionally intense, that have been neglected. We see David through the eyes of those who love him or fear him—from the prophet Natan, voice of his conscience, to his wives Mikal, Avigail, and Batsheva, and finally to Solomon, the late-born son who redeems his Lear-like old age. Brooks has an uncanny ability to hear and transform characters from history, and this beautifully written, unvarnished saga of faith, desire, family, ambition, betrayal, and power will enthrall her many fans.
  • March 16, 2017 – 7:00 PM The Wright Brothers by David McCullough Leader: Becky Poole Two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize David McCullough tells the dramatic story-behind-the-story about the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly: Wilbur and Orville Wright. In this thrilling book, master historian David McCullough draws on the immense riches of the Wright Papers, including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence to tell the human side of the Wright Brothers’ story, including the little-known contributions of their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them. (From the publisher.)
  • May 18, 2017 7:00 PM In the City of Bikes by Pete Jordon Leader: to be determined From its beginnings as an elitist pastime in the 1890s to the streetconsuming craze of the 1920s, from the bicycle’s role in a citywide resistance to the Nazi occupation to the White Bikes of the 1960s and the bike fishermen of today, Jordan chronicles the evolution of Amsterdam’s cycling. “In the City of Bikes is a funny, engaging and exhaustively researched tribute to Amsterdam’s unique biking history. But more than that, In the City of Bikes is a portrait of one man’s obsession with bikes. Jordan is an honest, self-effacing narrator, and there’s much that’s lovably comic about his inauguration into Amsterdam cyclo-culture.
Lee Evenson leads an educational bridge review on Tuesdays, September through April from 1:30 – 3:30 pm in the Otto Fellowship Hall.
