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!
February's book is The Guarded Gate: Bigotry, Eugenics and the Law That Kept Two Generations of Jews, Italians, and Other European Immigrants Out of America by Daniel Okrent. Daniel Okrent has taken a largely forgotten epoch in American history and brilliantly brought it back to life. Okrent’s book tells the story of the immigration battles of the early twentieth century in a way that’s both fascinating on its own terms, but also, relevant to today’s news. Joan D. will lead discussion.
