MPL History Book Club

MPL History Book Club

– First Wednesdays, 7:00pm –

Join a lively discussion group focused on history!  A subject is determined each month and participants read a non-fiction history book related to the topic.  New members are welcome to join and experience history from many points of view on one topic.  No other history book club offers this unique approach!


Wednesday, September 4, 2019 – 7:00 PM – 8:45 PM – Meeting Room

September Topic:  Man-Made Disasters

The September topic will be Man-Made Disasters. This could include events where disasters were directly caused by the actions of humans, such as the Chernobyl nuclear accident, the Johnstown Flood, London’s Killer Fog of 1952, the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, and Love Canal. One might also read a book about an accident where the impact was magnified by the negligence or apathy by humans. Many fires or epidemics could fit into this category.  Each person will have an opportunity to share what they read. To give everyone a chance to speak and allow for group discussion, members should plan to talk for about ten minutes.
Everyone is welcome, whether they read a book and want to share or they just want to listen and learn!
