October 2010 meeting info and booklist

When: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 7:00 PM

Where: The Grape at St. Johns Town Center
10281 Midtown Pkwy
Jacksonville, FL 32246
904.642.7111

The October list is here! Drumroll, please!

Local interest + enduring popularity+post-apocalyptic scariness for the Hal. season = Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank.
The trend toward not so young adults reading young adult lit for the exciting story lines causes me to add The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Oh, and did I mention that it has more post-apolycapticism!?
If you want a nice package combining science with human interest and accessibility, we have The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements by Sam Kean.

The books brought forward from the last list are Switch, How to Change Things When Change is Hard by Chip Heath and Dan Heath and The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World by Eric Weiner.
