In January the book group will discuss "The Man Who Knew Too Much: Alan Turing and the Invention of the Computer," by David Leavitt

Hounded by authorities and peers alike, British mathematician Alan Turing committed suicide in 1954 by biting into a cyanide-laced apple. A groundbreaking thinker in the field of pure math, a man principally responsible for breaking the Enigma code used by the Germans during WWII and the originator of the ideas that led to the invention of the computer, Turing was also an avowed homosexual at a time when such behavior flew in the face of both convention and the law. (Paperback, 336 pp, $10.17 on Amazon.)
