April 10, 6:00 p.m. – The Rosie Project by Graeme C. Simsion (2013)
A socially awkward genetics professor who has never been on a second date sets out to find the perfect wife, but instead finds Rosie Jarman, a fiercely independent barmaid who is on a quest to find her biological father.
May 8, 6:00 p.m. – The Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons by Sam Kean (2014)
Early studies of human brain function used a simple method: wait for misfortune to strike — strokes, seizures, infectious diseases, lobotomies, accidents — and observe how the victim coped. With lucid explanations and incisive wit, Sam Kean explains the brain’s secret passageways while recounting forgotten stories of common people whose struggles, resiliency, and deep humanity made modern neuroscience possible.
June 12, 6:00 p.m. – The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck (2017)
Set at the end of World War II, amid the ashes of Nazi Germany’s defeat, in a crumbling Bavarian castle that once played host to all of German high society, a powerful and propulsive story of three widows whose lives and fates become intertwined.
