At the Wednesday, December 21, 201, meeting at the Community Garden’s Living Room on Second Street, the group spoke of many books. Ultimately, most decided to read Thomas Friedman’s Thanks for Being Late, An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations.
In addition to Friedman, others thought they might read, this month or in the future: Nothing to Envy about North Korea; Hillbilly Elegy; Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy about Alabama’s Justice Institute; Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal; Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide; Wangari Maathai’s Challenge for Africa; Dava Sobel’s Glass Universe, How the Ladies of the Harvard Observatory Took the Measure of the Stars.

BOOK BUNCHES OVERVIEW
If you are new to the area and/or wish to be part of the Book Bunch, welcome. Reading groups have been a long, cherished tradition in Cedar Key; the most recent iteration of readers is/are the Book Bunches, both Fiction and Non Fiction.
The groups are quite informal. Come to one or come to both groups if you like. Attend one meeting or all. See if the groups are a fit for you.
Usually, the December meetings discuss and select the books people would like to read for the upcoming months.
All are welcome.
Bring a friend or friends.
