Book Club - Fall 2017
October – Egalia's Daughters
Egalia’s Daughters: A Satire of the Sexes by Gerd Brantenberg.
An interesting thought-provoking satire on gender roles and in particular the fortunes of one “masculinist” boy who tries to fight against the oppression of his gender. It’s an upside-down society, in which men are repressed and taken advantage of, and women have all the power.
November – The History of Bees
The History of Bees, A Novel by Maja Lunde
The Founding Gardeners
The follow up to the award-winning and critically acclaimed history of British gardening, this is the story of how George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison’s passion for nature, plants, agriculture and gardens shaped the birth of America. The Founding Gardeners offers a fascinating look at the revolutionary generation from the unique and intimate perspective of their lives as gardeners, plantsmen and farmers.
