May 8, 2014 Meetup: Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan

We welcomed two new members to our April Meetup for a discussion of When the Emperor Was Divine, by Julie Otsuka.  This novel explores a shameful era in American history, the forcible internment of Japanese Americans during most of World War II.  Otsuka weaves a claustrophobic narrative of trust shattered, lives altered and sometimes crushed by fear and hate often cloaked by anonymity.

Our May selection, Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, is an award-winning memoir and medical mystery about one woman's struggle to recapture her identity.  It promises to be a gripping and fascinating read.

 I will soon be posting the book list and schedule for the upcoming 12 months.  We hope to see you at The Rathskeller soon!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
