SCHEDULE
Wednesday, July 3 · The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild

BookPage calls it, “A blistering, uninhibited and hilarious satire of the London art scene . . . The writing is so good, interweaving a complex set of love stories of different kinds: romantic love, filial love, love of art.”

Wednesday, August 7 · Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II by Liza Mundy

Recruited by the U.S. Army and Navy from small towns and elite colleges, more than ten thousand women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington and learned the meticulous work of code-breaking. Their efforts shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them.

Wednesday, September 4 · Broken Places & Outer Spaces: Finding Creativity in the Unexpected by Nnedi Okorafor

A guidebook for anyone eager to understand how their limitations might actually be used as a creative springboard, Broken Places & Outer Spaces is an inspiring look at how to open up new windows in your mind.

Wednesday, October 2 · Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty
