Tuesday, December 11th at 7:30 PM - Red Notice by Bill Browder

A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how, without intending to, he founding meaning in his life.

 

Tuesday, January 8th at 7:30 PM - King Leopold’s Ghost by Adam Hochschild

Carrying out a genocidal plundering of the Congo, King Leopold II looted its rubber, brutalized its people, and ultimately slashed its population by ten million—all while shrewdly cultivating his reputation as a great humanitarian.

 

Sunday, February 24th at 3:00 PM - Walls: A History of Civilization in Blood and Brick by David Frye (Please note the change in time and date.)

In a brisk and compulsively readable narrative of invasions, empires, kings, and khans, David Frye presents a bold new theory: walls haven’t just influenced the course of history; they have profoundly shaped the human psyche.
