Thank you for everyone that attended our August book meeting! It was great to see new and familiar faces while discussing such a difficult and pertinent topic. Also, thank you Heather D. for letting us use the conference room at your work.
During our meeting, we discussed our next book group choices.
Salt: A World History
By Mark Kurlansky
“Mark Kurlansky, the bestselling author of Cod and The Basque History of the World, here turns his attention to a common household item with a long and intriguing history: salt. The only rock we eat, salt has shaped civilization from the very beginning, and its story is a glittering, often surprising part of the history of humankind. A substance so valuable it served as currency, salt has influenced the establishment of trade routes and cities, provoked and financed wars, secured empires, and inspired revolutions. Populated by colorful characters and filled with an unending series of fascinating details, Kurlansky’s kaleidoscopic history is a supremely entertaining, multi-layered masterpiece.”
