The LWV St. Paul book club meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 10:15 am at the Sun Ray Library, 2105 Wilson Ave. 55119. All are welcome to attend regardless of whether they have read the book that month. Please join us if you're interested!
May's book is The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis. Lewis takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its own leaders through willful ignorance. In Agriculture the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed. The Commerce Department may not have enough staff to conduct the 2020 Census properly. Over at Energy, where international nuclear risk is managed, it's not clear there will be enough inspectors to track and locate black market uranium before terrorists do. Claudia D. will lead discussion.
