Theme: Double Dog Dare You (to read this!)
In this group readers get to sample some of the most lively and interesting history books ever written. The first two books, read over the fall semester, explore aspects of American history, from the harrowing and beautiful life of a midwife in the early American republic to the dark side of US imperialism in modern Latin America and the Middle East. The second two, read over the spring, consist of a history of 16th-century art and a historical novel about a wild man that together explore developments in world history as seen from China’s perspective.
Group members will discuss the books during four evening meetings over the course of the academic year. Best of all: NO prior knowledge about any of these topics is required! These are all wonderfully-written, engaging books that explore the human past in fun and different ways.
