Book Discussion Group - Weston Senior Center
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

This event will be held at the Weston Senior Center. Please email kbennett@westonct.gov to reserve a book.

Book:  All Quiet on the Western Front, by Erich Maria Remarque 

Discussion Leader Ray Rauth

Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other--if only he can come out of the war alive.

This book club is meant to be a relaxed and interesting way to read new books with your peers.  We will rotate locations between the library, senior center, and historical society.  The format will be 11am-12pm book discussion, followed by a light lunch catered from Peter’s Market 12pm-1pm.  The cost for lunch is $5.00.

Book Discussion Group - Weston Public Library
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

This event will be held at the Weston Public Library. To reserve a copy of the book, please email kbennett@westonct.gov

Book:  Grant, by Ron Chernow

Discussion Leader Art Gottlieb

Ulysses S. Grant's life has typically been misunderstood. All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and an inept businessman, or as the triumphant but brutal Union general of the Civil War. But these stereotypes don't come close to capturing him, as Chernow shows in his masterful biography, the first to provide a complete understanding of the general and president whose fortunes rose and fell with dizzying speed and frequency.

This book club is meant to be a relaxed and interesting way to read new books with your peers.  We will rotate locations between the library, senior center, and historical society.  The format will be 11am-12pm book discussion, followed by a light lunch catered from Peter’s Market 12pm-1pm.  The cost for lunch is $5.00.
