 September 1, 2020, 7 PM.  Prague Sonata, by Bradford Morrow. In the early days of the new millennium, pages of a worn and weathered original sonata manuscript come into the hands of Meta Taverner, a young musicologist. The music rendered there is clearly the undiscovered composition of a master. Meta must attempt to find the manuscript’s true owner and to make the three-part sonata whole again. Leaving New York behind for the land of Dvorák and Kafka, Meta soon realizes that she isn’t the only one after the music’s secrets.

October 6, 2020, 7 PM.  The Library Book, by Susan Orlean. On April 29,1989, a disastrous fire destroyed the Los Angeles Public Library. Award-winning New Yorker reporter Susan Orlean (The Orchid Thief) delivers the thrilling story of heroic community efforts to salvage and rebuild, as well as a fascinating history of libraries and librarians with a remarkable cast of characters.  Orlean’s wit, insight, and compassion reveal how these vital institutions provide more than just books and are an essential part of the heart, mind, and soul of our country.

November 3, 2020, 7 PM.  The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, by Melinda Gates. In this candid and inspiring book, Gates traces her awakening to the direct link between women’s empowerment and the overall health of societies.  She introduces us to inspiring innovators she has met, offers startling evidence of successful projects, and encourages everyone to become involved.  Gates presents a persuasive case that no one should be excluded from life’s opportunities, that all lives have equal value, and that gender equity is the lever that lifts everything.
