2011-2012 AAUW Book Study Selections

Here are the book selections for the upcoming year. Contact Jeanne Jensen with questions or comments, The book studies are all held at noon at the Mill Street Residence.

**Monday, October 31—Classic Fiction—Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
(Has anyone read The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler? And if so, would that be a good companion read?)  **Since that is the same week as the Home Tour, if that would seem to be a conflict, we could pick another date.

Monday January 30—Nonfiction/Historical—Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand—The story of Louie Zamperini, Olympic athlete, airman in WWII, Japanese prisoner-of-war, and inspirational speaker

February/March—Fergus Reads selection, Huckleberry Finn

Thursday, March 29—Fiction/World Cultures--Shanghai Girls, by Lisa See—The story of sister Pearl and May Chin, living a life of privilege in 1937 Shanghai, until their father tells them he is broke and has sold them to American suitors. 
Monday, April 30—Biography—Molly Ivins: A Rebel Life, by Bill Minutaglio and W. Michael Smith
Molly was a wealthy Houston debutante who reinvented herself as one of the most provocative and courageous journalists in American history; a fascinating look at the behind the scenes of national media and politics and a sobering account of the toll of addiction and cancer.
