Women’s Club News

The next Women’s Club meeting will be on Jan 13th at noon.  We will be having lunch together and discussing the book Witness by Ruth Gruber.

Ruth Gruber, a foreign correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune, writes about what she saw and shows us through her haunting and life-affirming photographs, taken on each of her assignments; the worlds, the landscapes, the people, the courage, the hope, the life she witnessed, up close in the Siberian Gulag of the 1930’s.

Ruth Gruber is a truly fascinating woman.  Born in 1911 she was the youngest person in the world to earn a Ph.D. at the age of 20.  Ahead of Time is a wonderful documentary about her life.  You can view the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8v_PknZrsc    

Future meeting dates:  February 19, March 10, April 14, May 5, June 23
