Midtown Book Club: February 11, 2015 - The Man Who Touched His Own Heart by Rob Dunn
The February Midtown Book Club chat is on Wednesday, February 11, 2015. We will be discussing our February selection, The Man Who Touched His Own Heart by Rob Dunn.

February '15 (02/11/15) - The Man Who Touched His Own Heart by Rob Dunn - *** Book Group PREVIEW from our friend at Hachette. "The Man Who Touched His Own Heart tells the raucous, gory, mesmerizing story of the heart, from the first "explorers" who dug up cadavers and plumbed their hearts' chambers, through the first heart surgeries-which had to be completed in three minutes before death arrived-to heart transplants and the latest medical efforts to prolong our hearts' lives, almost defying nature in the process."

March '15 (03/11/15) - I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou. "Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local 'powhitetrash.' At eight years old and back at her mother’s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age–and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors ('I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare') will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned."

April '15 (04/08/15) - The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan. “Even though it used more electricity than New York City, Oak Ridge, Tennessee didn't appear on WWII era maps and the great majority of the 75,000 people who lived and worked there didn't know on what project they were working until long after their job was done. In fact, "Atomic City" didn't really acquire its nickname until after its top secret uranium project was completed. This new release tells the story of the women who worked there and how they helped win the war. Spiced generously with interviews and government documents, Denise Kiernan's narrative captures the camaraderie and mystery of this self-contained community, reminding us again that we're still learning vital things about that now distant era. Editor's recommendation.”

May '15 (05/13/15) - TBD - Theme: Ladies' Choice (Mother's Day!)

June '15 (06/10/15) - TBD - Theme: For The Men (Adventure/Manly)
