Our next discussion for the book club will be Tuesday, January 10 from 2-3 p.m. Mountain Time. This discussion will take place via Zoom. You can join the meeting with your phone or your computer.
As many of you know, the Utah State Library for the Blind and Print Disabled sponsors a winter reading program each January. The program focuses on a special theme with five core titles and supplemental titles for further reading. This year’s theme is “Building the Impossible” and the books focus on technological marvels. We decided to use these five core books for our next book club meeting. You don’t need to read all five titles to participate in the discussion! Just read what is most interesting to you.
The five core books for this year’s winter reading program are:
Dreams of Iron and Steel: Seven Wonders of the Nineteenth Century, from the Building of the London Sewers to the Panama Canal by Deborah Cadbury
Empires of Light: Edison, Tesla, Westinghouse, and the Race to Electrify the World by Jill Jonnes
The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson
The Wright Brothers by David G. McCullough
The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe
Please note: These titles will automatically be sent to all book club members who receive audio titles form the Utah State Library. If you are not a Utah audiobook patron, you will need to reach out to your state library.
