We have been reading Martin Luther King by Godfrey Hodgson. Martin Luther King left an indelible mark on twentieth-century American history through his leadership of the non-violent civil rights campaigns of the 1950s and 1960s. The election of Barack Obama as America’s first black president in November 2008 has spawned a renewed interest in King’s role as an agent and prophet of political change in the United States. This book gives a fascinating insight into a remarkable man.
Our next book will be Cranford by Elizabeth Gatskell. Cranford depicts the lives and preoccupations of the inhabitants of a small village with the Industrial Revolution approaching. It is an exquisitely observed tragicomedy of human nature, told with great delicacy and affection.
