Tired of boring your friends with the historical analysis of every movie you see or article you read? Well not everyone thinks history is cool...but we do! The idea for this group is to discuss one topic in history every month or two (e.g. the world in 1914, Canadian history, 18th-century Britain, the American frontier, the 1950s).  In preparation, you'll be given a list of books you can read (or skim) and movies and videos you can watch to give you background.  We can also get together to see history-related movies, including documentaries.  Will be cool to learn some new stuff based on the suggestions of different people in the group and just enjoy talking about history and how it relates to our lives/current events/etc.
