The next Cornell Club Book Club meeting will be February 7, 2017 (1st Tuesday) at the home of Eli Kaufman in Buffalo. Eli has selected Manhood for Amateurs: the pleasures and regrets of a husband, father, and son
by Michael Chabon. This nonfiction book is 39 connected writings. ” As a devoted son, passionate husband and above all as the father of four young Americans, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Chabon presents his hilarious and moving memories of childhood, of his parents’ marriage and divorce, of moments of painful adolescent comedy and giddy encounters with the popular art and literature of his own youth, as a theme played on instruments by the mad quartet of which he now finds himself co-conductor.” (from library summary)
In the Erie County library system, there are MANY copies of the book and audio versions.
Please let Celinda Crego (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you would like to attend or host an upcoming Book Club meeting.
