Our next book club meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 11, 2023 at 7:00 p.m.   

The book title is:

A Promised Land by Barack Obama

A Promised Land is Barack Obama's memoir of his early political career and the first two years of his presidency.  Obama takes us on his journey from relative obscurity as a biracial kid from Hawaii to becoming a transformative figure as the nation's first African-American president.

NOTE:  As this is a lengthy book, we will cover through Page 330 (the first half) continuing with the 2nd half (Part Four) at our next meeting, Thursday June 8th.
