Next Meeting: January, 14 2010 – Strength in What Remains by Tracy Kidder

Tracy Kidder’s newest book was #2 on Amazon’s editors Top Books of 2009 list.  It has received universal acclaim, and Book Group members may find parallels with another recent Book Group selection, What Is the What. Ron Suskind’s review in the NY Times mirrored Amazon’s enthusiasm for the book as did Marie Arana’s review in the Washington Post.  Random House’s website for the book includes a 5 minute video of Kidder with some of the other principles in the book, video of the clinic and other wonderful images as well as a teacher’s guide!  NPR interviewed Kidder on August 29, 2009.  The Village Health Works website shows the results of Deo’s work at bringing a clinic and basic health care  to Burundi.  The U.S. Dept. of State has lots of statistical information about Burundi as well as a map.
