The Book Club offers regular monthly gatherings on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7PM to discuss a book chosen by the group.
West with the Night is a 1942 memoir by Beryl Markham, chronicling her experiences growing up in Kenya in the early 1900s, leading to a career as a bush pilot there.
Born Beryl Clutterbuck in the middle of England, she and her father moved to Kenya when she was a girl, and she grew up with a zebra for a pet; horses for friends; baboons, lions, and gazelles for neighbors. She made money by scouting elephants from a tiny plane. And she would spend most of the rest of her life in East Africa as an adventurer, a racehorse trainer, and an aviatrix–she became the first person to fly nonstop from Europe to America, the first woman to fly solo east to west across the Atlantic. Hers was indisputably a life full of adventure and beauty.
No Book Club in December due to holidays.
Our selection for the January 22, 2018 meeting is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
