Everyone is invited to join the Social Wave Book Club as we discuss Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free by Charles P. Pierce.
In the midst of a career-long quest to separate the smart from the pap, journalist Charles Pierce had a defining moment at the Creation Museum in Kentucky, where he observed a dinosaur…wearing a saddle. With his razor-sharp wit and erudite reasoning, Pierce delivers a gut-wrenching, side-splitting lament about the glorification of ignorance in the United States. A staff writer for the Boston Globe Magazine, Pierce is a contributing writer for Esquire. [ more info]

04/25 (Wed): Reading on the Ave Book Club: Lies My Teacher Told Me (Posted by: WGBA)All are welcome to attend the Reading on the Avenue Book Club, which meets in the Community Room of Willow Glen Library. On Wednesday, April 25, we'll be discussing Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong by James A. Loewen.
Americans have lost touch with their history, and James Loewen shows us why; after surveying 18 leading high school American history texts, he concludes that not one makes history interesting or memorable. In this book, Loewen revives our history, restoring the vitality and relevance it truly possesses. Thought-provoking, nonpartisan, and often shocking, Loewen unveils the real America in this iconoclastic classic beloved by high school teachers, history buffs, and enlightened citizens across the country.
