    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.

    March's book is Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History by S.C. Gwynne. The first story traces the rise and fall of the Comanches, the most powerful Indian tribe in American history.

    April's book is Call Me American: A Memoir by Abdi Nor Iftin. Abdi loved the U.S. so much he became known around Mogadishu as Abdi American, but when the radical Islamist group al-Shabaab rose to power in 2006 Abdi was eventually forced to flee to Kenya. He won entrance to the U.S.  though his route to America did not come easily. Now a proud resident of Maine, his dramatic, deeply stirring memoir is truly a story for our time: a vivid reminder of why America still beckons to those looking to make a better life. Cheryl P. will lead discussion.

    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.
