Read our selection and come discuss it with us.

Our selection for April is Daniel Tammet's Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant. This memoir is described as a "riveting account of living with atutism." This particular account of autism is unique in that it describes the author's remarkable gifts and capabilities within a mysterious condition that is more widely known for its disabilities and limitations.

Born on A Blue Day is a well written account of one of the most fascinating minds alive today. He sees numbers as shapes, colors and textures. He is able to perform unimaginable mental feats of memorization and calculation. He learns new languages fluently in one week's time.

Our club meets the second Sunday of the month, 3PM. We meet and greet for about a half hour and then discuss the book for about an hour. The group chooses the next selections.

While we are not a therapy or support group the reader of these remarkable stories should find a friendly place for discussion. New members are always welcome. In order to support the book store we ask that you buy your books from us, or make a $5 donation.

    Drew,
    I wish I had asked you how SHOGUN changed your way of viewing the world. For me it was to consider the possibility of fate predetermining my life but also the realization of how money actually rules the world. I read it a long, long time ago; surely by now I would have realized the power of money just by reading the newspapers.

    I really consider this book far from riveting. I'll be interested to hear why some people do find it so.

    I am a tentative "yes." We are moving that weekend... Will depend on how much we get accomplished.

    I read this many moons ago and don't have a current copy. Will this be a problem?
