San Clemente Library Adult Book Club meets Wednesday June 29 2016.
This is a San Clemente free event.
One Summer: America 1927 by Bill Bryson is the June Book Selection.
The summer of 1927 began with Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic.
Meanwhile, Babe Ruth was closing in on the home run record. In Newark, New Jersey, Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly sat atop a flagpole for twelve days, and in Chicago, the gangster Al Capone was tightening his grip on bootlegging. The first true “talking picture,” Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, was filmed, forever changing the motion picture industry.
All this and much, much more transpired in the year Americans attempted and accomplished outsized things—and when the twentieth century truly became the American century.
One Summer transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order.
Book Club meets from 10:00am to 11:30am at San Clemente Library.
San Clemente Library is located at 242 Avenida Del Mar.
For more information, or to pick up a copy of the book, please ask at the Library’s Service Desk.
