We met Thursday, March 26th to discuss the book “Behind the Beautiful Forever” by Katherine Boo. Although everyone agreed it was a depressing, but well-written and researched book and all were glad they read it. Our moderator, Judy Wilson, pointed out that every story in the book was based on real events and characters. The author spent months in the slums with these people and presented their stories in their harsh reality. The harsh realities of slum living was hard to imagine and in addition every person you meet – friend or legal system worker - asks for a bribe. You might want to check out these interviews to learn more about the author and the topic. NDTV interview or Stephen Colbert Interview
The next meeting will be Monday, April 27th at 7 pm at the YMCA. The book is “Churchill’s Secretary: A Maggie Hope Mystery” by Susan Llia MacNeal.. A nice mystery involving World War II, the IRA, Winston Churchill, MI 5, the London blitz, and, of course, a murder. A fun book and an easy read. It is a real page-turner. Hope to see you there, remember its not required to read the book, we will fill you in.

Our March 25th program will continue one of our club’s favorite themes, “Coming To America”. In this program, our own Club members, Don Sun, Vicky Tsai and Peyman Sahbaie, will relate the stories of how they and their families came to America to start new lives. Club members always find these programs inspiring as well as informative. We learn things about the lives of these members that most of us never knew before. We learn about the problems of adapting to a new cultural environment – an experience that is unfamiliar to most native-born Americans. This is the second in the series of “Coming To America” programs coordinated by Past District Governor and Past President, Don Allen.
