September Meetup (Silver Spring) - Bound for Glory

Our book for September 2012 in Silver Spring is Bound for Glory by Woody Guthrie. Bound for Glory expresses the heart of a man, a life and a people. Told in true storteller fashion, one which twists and turns language into something alive and personal, Woodie Guthrie recounts his life, from Oklahoma to all around this great big old country. And by the book's end, you feel you've rambled the whole way with him and seen what he had. This is an American classic. No American history book or teacher or what have you can give you a tenth of what this book can---i.e., the ethos of the American people who suffered many trials and tribulations, deprivations and hardship, and yet managed to still be beautiful. So forget your Beatniks and your New England Transcendentalists, and pick up a book worthy of being called an example of the American Bardic Tradition. Paradise

    very good interesting discussion, and nice that it was suggested on Woodie's 100th birthday ( thank you John for the suggestion!). It was an extra pus that the restaurant was kind enough to provide free appetizers. I guess they appreciate our business of 2+ years.
