Program June 2017
Book Club – June 2017
This month our book club will be meet Tuesday, June 27th at 7pm and will be discussing two books.
Our first book for the June meeting: Commonwealth is the seventh novel by American author Ann Patchett published in 2016. The novel begins with an illicit kiss that leads to an affair that destroys two marriages and creates a reluctantly blended family.
Our second book: The History of Bees, A Novel by Maja Lunde. In the spirit of Station Eleven and Never Let Me Go, this dazzling and ambitious literary debut follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, weaving a spellbinding story of their relationship to the bees—and to their children and one another—against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis. England, 1852. William is a biologist and seed merchant, who sets out to build a new type of beehive—one that will give both him and his children honor and fame. United States, 2007. George is a beekeeper fighting an uphill battle against modern farming, but hopes that his son can be their salvation…

WO/MEN S MARCH MUNICH
Deeply touched by the peace process in Israel in the autumn of 2016, singer and peace activist Yael Deckelbaum ( see video), wrote a song which would become a symbol of this movement for peace and the worldwide Women’s Marches. Now here in Munich, we are joining in the worldwide Women’s Marches. The starting point is Münchner Freiheit. The Münchner Friedenszug will follow the Leopoldstrasse to Professor-Huber-Platz. The Israeli singer Yael Deckelbaum will participate in the Munich march and will sing along with us.
The march is the expression of a global movement which focuses not on competition, but rather on connection, not exclusion but on humanity, not on intolerance but on freedom and diversity. It is about nothing less than changing our view and perspective, our coexistence with one another and life in the whole: Away from what separates us, to what connects us. This is nothing less than a small revolution. Come and be a part of it! Come and march in Munich on June 24th and bring all your friends with you.
