The Harvard Book Club --Wednesday, January 29, 2020

The next Harvard Club of Cincinnati Book Club meeting is set for Wednesday, January 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bronte Cafe in the Joseph Beth Bookstore.

We will be reading "On Tyranny, Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century" by Timothy Snyder.

Timothy Snyder is the Levin Professor of History at Yale University. He is the author of Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin and Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning. Snyder is a member of the Committee on Conscience of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and a permanent fellow of the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna.

Anonymous reader:  "Timothy warns us that historical cycles, inevitable good ends and eternal dangers are myths that lull our minds to sleep. They allow us to float with the tide. This is a necessary read for those living [today]."
