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 readers are welcome to join and experience history from many points of view on one topic.  No other history book club offers this unique approach!


August Topic: The Olympics: The Games, the History, the People

August Meeting: Wednesday, August 4, 2021 – 7:00 PM on Zoom

Everyone is welcome, whether they read a book and want to share or they just want to listen and learn!

The August topic will be The Olympics: The Games, the History, the People and the discussion will take place on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 7:00PM via Zoom.   Participants should read a non-fiction book of their choosing related to an aspect of The Olympics: The Games, the History, the People.  Perhaps you have a favorite Olympian or Olympic moment and want to dive deeper into that aspect.  The timeline of the Olympics runs a large range so have fun with what aspect you choose!  Join in at the meeting to share your findings with the group or, if curious to see what a meeting is like, just come and listen.
