The July discussion will be on John Kenneth Galbraith's book, "The Great Crash, 1929".
"Economic writings are seldom notable for their entertainment value, but this book is. Galbraith's prose has grace and wit, and he distills a good deal of sardonic fun from the whopping errors of the nation's oracles and the wondrous antics of the financial community." (Atlantic Monthly).
The book is just 200 pages, so it's a short read, and a great chance to learn about a subject matter many of us may not typically read about.
Some of the fiction books on our list for next month's selection are listed below. This list is open for additions and deletions, so please let me know if you have input.
Crime and Punishment; Author Fyodor Dostoevsky
The Great Gatsby; Author F. Scott Fitzgerald
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court; Author Mark Twain
Death Comes for the Archbishop; Author Willa Cather
The Sun Also Rises; Author Ernest Hemingway
