Vegan Book Club, Dovetail, May 27, Einstein, by Walter Isaacson

I understand that Dovetail is a small place, but by judging by the attendance at the last few meetings, we should be able to fit. Plus -- they have been adding more chairs and opening up the patio! Anyway, have you had their weekend biscuits and gravy? It is worth the chance! (Don't worry - if it is a total fail, we can walk next door to Vita Cafe)

Walter Isaacson's book on Einstein is the first biography since his personal correspondence reached the public domain so LOTS of juicy/sexy details about everyone's favorite theoretical physicist/vegetarian!! AND Isaacson talks about all of his theories in a way that won't put you to sleep! If you already know them, no big whoop, he gives good insight by placing them in the historical context and the context of Einstein's life!!

    Tina picked out a book (I don't know what it is though) and was supposed to post a meetup. I'll remind her :)

    I was also studying for licensure exams and missed it. The third sounds good to me as well.

    I'm barely getting started with the book, I'll try really hard to finish it but I'll be there regardless!

    About halfway through the book, it's good. But I just realized I won't be around that weekend. Boo.

    I love Dovetail's biscuits and gravy and I'm excited to read this book! Unfortunately, I have visitors in town then, so I won't be able to make it. Boo!
