The Nonfiction Book Club meets once a month after the service, usually on the second Sunday, at 12:00 noon. In each meeting each person (who wishes to do so) talks about a nonfiction book of their choice.

 

Some of the books discussed so far include:

  • "What Darwin Got Wrong," by Jerry Fodor and Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini
  • "The Geography of Bliss," by Eric Weiner
  • "Why Nicaragua" by Pat McCully
  • "Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation," by Joseph J. Ellis
  • "And Man Created God: A History of the World at the Time of Jesus," by Selina O'Grady
  • "A Primate's Memoir: A Neuroscientist's Unconventional Life Among the Baboons," by Robert M. Sapolsky
  • "Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America," by David Hackett Fischer
  • "The American Presidency: Origins and Development, 1776-2011," by Sidney M Milkis
  • "The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined," by Steven Pinker
  • "The Origins of Political Order: From Prehuman Times to the French Revolution," by Francis Fukuyama

Everyone is welcome! We'd love to hear about a nonfiction book you enjoyed. Just tell us what it's about, why you read it, what you think about it, how it surprised you, and what kind of readers might like it; you can even read us some excerpts.
