AMERICANAH by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Saturday, June 8, at 10:30 a.m.
Sandy Zagarell, Oberlin College, discussion leader
This is a story about a young Nigerian woman who emigrates to the U.S. from Nigeria, leaving her college boyfriend behind, with the hope of a better education, and ultimately, a good life. Despite her academic success, she is faced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. This book discussion is in celebration of Immigrant Heritage Month.

THE WOMAN'S HOUR:  THE GREAT FIGHT TO WIN THE VOTE by Elaine Weiss
Monday, June 24, at 6:00 p.m.
Jeremy Angstadt and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders
Following a handful of remarkable women who led their respective forces into battle, along with appearances by Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Frederick Douglass, and Eleanor Roosevelt, The Woman’s Hour is an inspiring story of activists winning their own freedom in one of the last campaigns forged in the shadow of the Civil War, and the beginning of the great twentieth-century battles for civil rights.

ROCKET MEN: THE DARING ODYSSEY OF APOLLO 8 AND THE ASTRONAUTS WHO MADE MAN'S FIRST JOURNEY TO THE MOON by Robert Kurson
Monday, July 15, at 6:00 p.m.
John Montag, discussion leader
In a year of historic violence and discord—the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy, the riots at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago—the Apollo 8 mission would be the boldest, riskiest test of America’s greatness under pressure. Drawn from hundreds of hours of one-on-one interviews with the astronauts, their loved ones, NASA personnel, and myriad experts, and filled with vivid and unforgettable detail, Rocket Men is the definitive account of one of America’s finest hours.

THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir
Monday, August 12, at 6:00 p.m.
Dennis McMullen and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
