This book covers the Middle Ages, Epicureanism, palimpsests, self-flagellation, evolution, bookworms, the meaning of life, pleasure, atoms, Vesuvius, hypocrisy and the void. It has something for everyone!!!
Meet on an occasional basis to discuss a book. The host selects the date, time, number of people and decides if they will serve any food or drinks. I will serve a summer dessert, unsweet tea and wine. My book is The Swerve: How the World Became Modern by Stephen Greenblatt. We'll discuss THE WHOLE BOOK for this final of three meetings. The first half hour or so will be for socializing. Due to space limitations I'll cap this at 12 people. Here's a review of the book: http://www.npr.org/2011/09/20/140463632/the-swerve-ideas-that-rooted-the-renaissance
