The selections for March's meeting:

Novel Ideas (Morning)- It's Cozy Mystery time!
Pearls and Poison
by Duffy Brown

It’s election time in Savannah, Georgia, and Judge Guillotine Gloria—aka Reagan Summerside’s mom—is neck and neck in the polls with Kip “Scummy” Seymour.  But the already dirty campaign is about to get downright filthy—with one candidate getting buried six feet under…
With her strong opinions and knack for getting into trouble, Reagan is not an ideal volunteer for her mother’s alderman campaign. Plus, she’d rather be running her consignment shop, the Prissy Fox, and eating doughnuts with her dog, Bruce Willis. But when her mother’s opponent, Kip, is found poisoned and her mother is pegged as a suspect, Reagan nominates herself as lead murder investigator.

Novels at Night (Evening)-
TBA - March's Meeting Rescheduled. Will post after April's book is decided.

Erie Business Book Club Meeting

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

When: Thursday, April 3rd at 7:30 AM

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different?

His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.

May: How to Win Friends & Influence People in the Digital Age by Dale Carnegie & Assoc.

When: Thursday, May 1st at 7:30 AM

An adaptation of Dale Carnegie’s timeless prescriptions for the digital age.

May's Selection

Book Signing - Cuernavaca with author Richard Perhacs

When: Saturday, May 17th from 11AM - 1PM

Copies of the book will be for sale at the signing for 14.95 and refreshments provided.

Richard Perhacs practices law in Erie, PA. An author of professional works, Cuernavaca is his debut novel.

About Cuernavaca:

Scott Flores’ life implodes overnight.

All that he’s built—a promising career as a standout college professor, his reputation as a brilliant young anthropologist and a near perfect marriage to his beautiful wife—is leveled and none of his personal fortune can change what happens. Grappling with the devastating aftermath and battling his own personal demons, he finds himself on an airplane headed to southern Mexico and the city of Cuernavaca, at the desperate urging of his mentor, fellow anthropologist Jerry Dwyer.

The chance for a new start at a fascinating archeological dig turns into the ultimate test of character when he’s dragged into a shadowy underworld hidden behind the gritty charm of this new land. It’s an invisible world of good versus evil, black-market smuggling, merciless criminals and murder—all punctuated by a corrupt legal system.

Set in contemporary Mexico against the backdrop of a wildly-contested national election that touches Scott’s life in ways he doesn’t understand, Cuernavaca showcases the best and worst of a nation struggling to recreate itself as Scott struggles to earn his own second chance.
