    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.

    June's book will be: Home Now: How 6000 Refugees Transformed an American Town  by Cynthia Anderson. "Like so many American factory town, Lewiston, Maine, thrived until its mill jobs disappeared and the young began leaving. But the story unexpectedly veered: over the course of fifteen years, the city became home to thousands of African immigrants and, along the way, turned into one of the most Muslim towns in the U.S. Now about 6,000 of Lewiston's 36,000 inhabitants are refugees and asylum seekers, many of them Somali. Cynthia Anderson tells the story of this fractious yet resilient city near where she grew up, offering the unfolding drama of a community's reinvention -- and humanizing some of the defining political issues in America today."
