We'll be discussing Pat Barker's "Regeneration"
for our next gathering on January 8, 2018

The first book of the Regeneration Trilogy and a Booker Prize nominee
 
In 1917 Siegfried Sasson, noted poet and decorated war hero, publicly refused to continue serving as a British officer in World War I. His reason: the war was a senseless slaughter. He was officially classified "mentally unsound" and sent to Craiglockhart War Hospital. There a brilliant psychiatrist, Dr. William Rivers, set about restoring Sassoon's "sanity" and sending him back to the trenches. This novel tells what happened as only a novel can. It is a war saga in which not a shot is fired. It is a story of a battle for a man's mind in which only the reader can decide who is the victor, who the vanquished, and who the victim.
 
One of the most amazing feats of fiction of our time, Regneration has been hailed by critics across the globe.  As August 2014 marks the 100-year anniversary of World War I, this book is as timely and relevant as ever.

Grand Canyon Geology:
Rafting through Two Billion Years of Earth History

We are fortunate to live near one of the greatest geologic spectacles
in the world, Grand Canyon. 

Our guest speaker, Alison Jones, a local geologist, will take us on a virtual journey through the Canyon to show us some of the geologic, anthropologic, and historical points of interest. Learn how the canyon formed and see the rocks in a whole new way. This talk is for the layperson, but those with a geologic background will enjoy it too.
