Women & Power: A Manifesto by Mary Beard

Wednesday • August 8 • 6pm

U District store

Join True Grace book club for a lively discussion of this month's book.

Mary Beard traces the origins of misogyny to its ancient roots in Women and Power. As far back as Homer's Odyssey, women have been prohibited from leadership roles in civic life. From Medusa to Philomela (whose tongue was cut out), from Hillary Clinton to Elizabeth Warren (who was told to sit down), Beard draws illuminating parallels between our cultural assumptions about women's relationship to power. Beard asks: If women aren't perceived to be within the structure of power, isn't it power itself we need to redefine? And how many more centuries should we be expected to wait?

The Book Thieves by Anders Rydell

Thursday • August 9 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Join The Odd Shelf book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

When Nazi soldiers ransacked Europe's libraries and bookshops the books they stole were not burned. Instead, the Nazis began to compile a library of their own to wage an intellectual war on literature and history. But when the war was over, most of the books were never returned. Instead many found their way into the public library system. Through extensive new research Anders Rydell tells the story of Nazi book theft as he himself joins the effort to return what was stolen and shows just how much a single book can mean to those who own it.

Join Nancy Pearl's book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Finalist for the National Book Award for Nonfiction

When George Washington was elected president, he left his beloved Mount Vernon to serve in Philadelphia, the temporary seat of the nation's capital. With him he took his celebrated secretary and eight slaves, including Ona Judge. But according to Pennsylvanian law, enslaved people had to be freed after six months of residency in the state. Rather than comply, Washington sent them back south just as the clock was about to expire. Never Caught is an eye-opening look into America's First Family and the powerful narrative of a young woman, who risked everything to escape the nation's capital and reach freedom.
