World History and Cultural Events Book Group

February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Online

All are welcome to join this monthly discussion of books on current and historical world events and international culture.  This month’s book is: The Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson.  From the first descent of the larynx into the throat (why you can talk but your dog can’t), to the fine lost art of swearing, Bryson tells the fascinating, often uproarious story of an inadequate, second-rate tongue of peasants that developed into one of the world’s largest growth industries.

“Vastly informative and vastly entertaining…A scholarly and fascinating book.” —Los Angeles Times

Join the Zoom meeting here on Feb. 10 , 7 pm.
