Midtown Book Club: January 14, 2015 - 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The January Midtown Book Club chat is on Wednesday, January 14, 2015. We will be discussing our January selection, 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

January '15 (01/14/15) - 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. "The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the noble, ridiculous, beautiful, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America."

February '15 (02/11/15) - The Man Who Touched His Own Heart - *** Book Group PREVIEW from our friend at Hachette. "The Man Who Touched His Own Heart tells the raucous, gory, mesmerizing story of the heart, from the first "explorers" who dug up cadavers and plumbed their hearts' chambers, through the first heart surgeries-which had to be completed in three minutes before death arrived-to heart transplants and the latest medical efforts to prolong our hearts' lives, almost defying nature in the process."

March '15 (03/11/15) - "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" by Maya Angelou. Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old and back at her mother’s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age–and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors (“I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare”) will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned.
