    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown@voorpl.org
   

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

The Wright Brothers by David McCullough

In this “enjoyable, fast-paced tale” (The Economist), master historian David McCullough “shows as never before how two Ohio boys from a remarkable family taught the world to fly” (The Washington Post)and “captures the marvel of what the Wrights accomplished” (The Wall Street Journal). He draws on the extensive Wright family papers to profile not only the brothers but their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them. Essential reading, this is “a story of timeless importance, told with uncommon empathy and fluency…about what might be the most astonishing feat mankind has ever accomplished…The Wright Brothers soars” (The New York Times Book Review).  

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).

Eleven by Patricia Reilly Giff

Sam is almost eleven when he discovers a locked box in the attic above his grandfather’s room and a piece of paper that says he was kidnapped. There are lots of other words, but Sam has always had trouble reading. Sam is desperate to find out who he and his grandfather are. At night he’s haunted by dreams of a big castle and a terrifying escape on a boat. Who can he trust to help him read the documents that could unravel the mystery? He and the new girl, Caroline, are paired up to work on a school project building a castle. Caroline loves to read and she can help, but she’s moving soon, and the two must hurry to discover the truth about Sam.
