May/June 2017

By June Melber

The latest meeting of the Book Club was held at Brushwood Center in Ryerson Woods Forest Preserve. We discussed Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How it Changed America, By John M. Barry.  The river inundated the homes of nearly 1 million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and Herbert Hoover President, drove hundreds of  thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever.

This was our last meeting at Brushwood House.  We will return to the new Village Hall on September 14, for our next session.  The book club will be on summer vacation for June, July, and August, but our September book selection will appear in the next Village Voice.
