I will host the October 4 discussion of "Coming Apart: The State of White America" by Charles Murray. I suggested this book. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Coming-Apart-State-America-1960-2010/dp/030745343X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1380495294&sr=1-1&keywords=coming+apart+by+charles+murray.
The other option for next month is Francesca's pick, "Philosophy in the Flesh" by George Lakoff. See the September 27 Meetup.
The November poll results are in, and the winners are: Karl's pick, "Emotion" from the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy by Ronald de Sousa, and Orson's pick, "A Conflict of Visions" by Thomas Sowell. Sally has offered to host the Sowell book November 8. Let me know if you'd be willing to host the de Soussa article on November 1 or another date in the future. I need two volunteers per month.
Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the poll for our December 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, 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.
