For our August meeting we will be discussing the book "
City of Truth" by James Morrow. This is a lighter read, which will give us time to read ahead for our September book, "
Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies" by Jared Diamond.
From Publishers Weekly:
Morrow's nearly perfect satiric novella takes place in the dystopia of Veritas, where everyone tells the truth or faces harsh punishment--which Jack Sperry risks when he learns that his son Toby has a fatal disease and that by lying to him he may enable Toby's cure.
