Charley Haddox will host the May 17 discussion of Steven Pinker's The Better Angels of Our Natures: Why Violence Has Declined. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1455883115.
The other option for May is Shakti's pick The Aristotle Adventure by Burgess Laughlin. See the May 10 Meetup.
The June poll results are in, and the winners are: Russell's pick Beyond the Hoax: Science, Philosophy and Culture by Alan Sokal and Karl's pick The Happiness of Pursuit by Shimon Edelman. Kit has volunteered to host the Edelman Meetup in June. Marc has agreed to host in July, and both Marc and Richard in August. Let me know if you'd be willing to host. I need two volunteers per month. My priority is finding someone to take the Sokal Meetup in June.
Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the poll for our July selections. You'll find that under the "More" menu at the top of this page. Anyone who is a member of this Meetup can submit a title for the poll. Just send me an email or post on this site, and I'll add your selection. However, I will only include one title from each member. If you submitted a title last month, I've rolled it over into the new poll. If you want to change your recommendation, just let me know.
As always, it's essential that everyone who comes to the meeting reads the book in its entirety. Please also bring a food or drink item for the potluck.
