On Sunday, November 18, eleven Mount Holyoke grads met at the home of Eleanor Manning ’06 to discuss Malcolm Gladwell’s The Outliers. Although all of us enjoyed the book, some found Gladwell a bit glib, and one reader pointed out that none of his outliers was a woman! The book club will not meet in December. Our next two meetings are as follows:
Sunday, January 27, at 2 PM: Seven Blackbirds by Helen Black ’81 (fiction). Helen would be happy to sell copies for $9 (contact her at 503-887-8028). One can also get the book through Amazon and Kindle. We will meet at the home of Caroline Resari ’99 in Northeast Portland (address to follow in the E-vite). For more information on Helen please see helenwinslowblack.com .
Sunday, February 24, at 2 PM: 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann (nonfiction). Location TBA.
