World History and Cultural Events Book Group

November 11, 2020 @ 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 Good Years by Walter Lord who thinks the first fourteen years of the twentieth century are frequently overlooked, being bookended by the glamorous Gilded Age at the beginning and the terrible years of the First World War at the end.  Walter Lord points out in his remarkable book, “These years were good because, whatever the trouble, [assassination of President McKinley, the Panic of 1907 when numerous banks and businesses went bankrupt, and the devastating earthquake and subsequent fire that destroyed much of San Francisco] people were sure they could fix it.”
