Council on Aging Book Discussion - The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin, pt.2
Ames Free Library Of Easton, Tuesday, April 28 at 2pm
Come join us for a discussion on this month's selected book,The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism by Doris Kearns Goodwin. This discussion is a continuations from our meeting on February 24th.
The gap between rich and poor has never been wider...legislative stalemate paralyzes the country...corporations resist federal regulations...spectacular mergers produce giant companies...the influence of money in politics deepens...bombs explode in crowded streets...small wars proliferate far from our shores...a dizzying array of inventions speeds the pace of daily life. These unnervingly familiar headlines serve as the backdrop for Doris Kearns Goodwin's highly anticipated The Bully Pulpit -a dynamic history of the first decade of the Progressive era, that tumultuous time when the nation was coming unseamed and reform was in the air. The story is told through the intense friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft-a close relationship that strengthens both men before it ruptures in 1912, when they engage in a brutal fight for the presidential nomination that divides their wives, their children, and their closest friends, while crippling the progressive wing of the Republican Party, causing Democrat Woodrow Wilson to be elected, and changing the country's history. The Bully Pulpit is also the story of the muckraking press, which arouses the spirit of reform that helps Roosevelt push the government to shed its laissez-faire attitude toward robber barons, corrupt politicians, and corporate exploiters of our natural resources.
The Council on Aging Book Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 1:00 PM. Our Meetings take place at Frothingham Hall, 15 Barrows Street, N. Easton, MA. We welcome all new members! (added from Eventkeeper)

"Humans, Dogs and Civilization" - Author Read by Dr. Elaine Ostrach Chaika
Books on the Square, Thursday, April 30 at 7pm
“This book is about dogs, how they communicate with people and each other. It shows when and how dogs evolved, how dogs differ from wolves, both genetically and behaviorally. It also explains how dogs perceive the world. The book is based on hard, cutting-edge science, but written in a clear narrative style. Laced throughout the book are actual stories of how dogs think, act, and perceive the world. Not only my dogs, but those I know are used to prove or disprove what scientists have discovered–and what scientists have discovered have disproved most of the myths of how dogs came to be the only species of animals that work for – and die for – another species, homo sapiens”.
