The September Midtown Book Club chat will be on Wednesday, September 10, 2014. We'll be discussing our September selection, Desert Queen...Gertrude Bell by Janet Wallach. This month, we move back to Barnes and Noble.

September '14 (09/10/14) - Desert Queen...Gertrude Bell by Janet Wallach. "Turning away from the privileged world of the "eminent Victorians," Gertrude Bell (1868—1926) explored, mapped, and excavated the world of the Arabs. Recruited by British intelligence during World War I, she played a crucial role in obtaining the loyalty of Arab leaders, and her connections and information provided the brains to match T. E. Lawrence's brawn. After the war, she played a major role in creating the modern Middle East and was, at the time, considered the most powerful woman in the British Empire.”

October '14 (10/08/14) - All the President's Men by Woodward & Bernstein. "The most devastating political detective story of the century: the inside account of the two Washington Post reporters who broke the Watergate scandal, now with a 40th anniversary Afterword on the legacies of Watergate and Richard Nixon.”

November '14 (11/12/14) - Stepford Wives by Ira Levin. "For Joanna, her husband, Walter, and their children, the move to beautiful Stepford seems almost too good to be true. It is. For behind the town's idyllic facade lies a terrible secret — a secret so shattering that no one who encounters it will ever be the same.”

December '14 (12/10/14) - Lamb by Christoper Moore. "The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his thirtieth birthday. But no one knows about the early life of the Son of God, the missing years — except Biff, the Messiah's best bud, who has been resurrected to tell the story in the divinely hilarious yet heartfelt work 'reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams'”

January '15 (01/14/15) - TBD - Theme: RIP authors 2014
