The book club is picking up their new book for the month.Â Why don’t you pick up a copy and join in?Â They will meet again to discuss it on Sept 8th.
This month’s book is Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder.Â Wow reading the inside cover I find that Tracy Kidder is a man and a Pulitzer Prize winner!Â This book is an inspiring non-fiction story about Paul Farmer, Doctor, Harvard professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist and recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant.Â ( I wonder how he answered the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” )
This magnificent book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer-brilliant, charismatic, charming, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti-blasts through convention to get results.
