September Book Club

The September 4th  ( 1st Tuesday, the day after Labor Day) Cornell Club Book Club Meeting  will be hosted by Eli Kaufman. Eli has chosen the book Grandfather Stories by Samuel Hopkins Adams.
 From Wikipedia: “Grandfather Stories is a book of 23 historical tales by journalist and novelist Samuel Hopkins Adams. Three were originally published in Woman’s Day and 15 in The New Yorker. Most of the stories take place in upper New York State, along the Erie Canal. Those stories told by his grandfather occur in the 1820s; others, when Adams was a boy in the 1870s and 1880s. Adams does not state how much of the tales is fact and how much is fiction; some are clearly his own memoirs, others are historical fiction, and still others seem to be a reconstruction of his grandfather’s life experiences.

July Book Club

The July 10 Book Club will be hosted by Jen Friedman. Jen has selected “Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah. This nonfiction book is written by the host of The Daily Show. “[A] compelling new memoir. . . . By turns alarming, sad and funny, [the] book provides a harrowing look, through the prism of Mr. Noah’s family, at life in South Africa under apartheid and the country’s lurching entry into a postapartheid era in the 1990s.” —The New York Times
There are many copies in the library system.
