The BuccaneersOur 3rd annual summer edition!  The Buccaneers by Edith Wharton. 

Nan and Jinny St George have both wealth and beauty in generous supply. In the New York society of the 1870s, however, only those with old money can achieve the status of the elite, and it is here that the sisters seem doomed to failure. Nan's new governess, Laura Testvalley, herself an outsider, takes pity on their plight and launches them instead on the unsuspecting British aristocracy. Lords, dukes, marquesses and MPs, it seems, not only appreciate beauty, but also the money that New York's nouveaux riches can supply.

A love story of love and marriage among the old and new moneyed classes, The Buccaneers is a delicately perceptive portrayal of a world on the brink of change.  Please reserve your copy and join us, all are invited!

Turn Right at Machu Piccu:  Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time by Mark Adams

In 1911, Hiram Bingham III climbed into the Andes Mountains of Peru and “discovered” Machu Picchu. While history has recast Bingham as a villain who stole both priceless artifacts and credit for finding the great archeological site, Mark Adams set out to retrace the explorer’s perilous path in search of the truth—except he’d written about adventure far more than he’d actually lived it. In fact, he’d never even slept in a tent.  This is the author's fascinating and funny account of his journey through some of the world’s most majestic, historic, and remote landscapes guided only by a hard-as-nails Australian survivalist and one nagging question: Just what was Machu Picchu?

John and Abigail Adams: An American Story


Both John and Abigail Adams played important roles in the many pivotal events of their times.  He was a key figure in the
Continental Congress and later wartime emissary to France; she was an important eyewitness reporter during the siege of Boston and in John's absence left alone to raise the family and manage the farm.  After the Revolution, John and Abigail were deeply caught up in the political turmoil of the 1790’s, which almost pulled the new nation apart. Join history professory Gary Hylander as he discusses one of America's most interesting couples in history.

Mountain to Mountain:  A Journey of Adventure and Activism for the Women of Afghanistan by Shannon Galpin

Being inspired to act can take many forms. For some it's taking a weekend to volunteer, but for Shannon Galpin, it meant leaving her career, selling her house, launching a nonprofit and committing her life to advancing education and opportunity for women and girls. Focusing on the war-torn country of Afghanistan, Galpin and her organization, Mountain2Mountain, have touched the lives of hundreds of men, women and children. As if launching a nonprofit wasn't enough, in 2009 Galpin became the first woman to ride a mountain bike in Afghanistan. Now she's using that initial bike ride to gain awareness around the country, encouraging people to use their bikes "as a vehicle for social change and justice to support a country where women don't have the right to ride a bike."
