For February, we are switching to history/biography with Leonardo, the acclaimed new best seller by Walter Isaacson. Da Vinci remains, at least to us, one of history’s most fascinating personalities- brilliant in art, science, mechanics and engineering and recording his curiosity about form and function in over 7000 pages of journals. Isaacson is an author with an unsurpassed grasp of his subject, so read up and join us for Book Club on February 20th at Peter Rupert’s home: 3530 Verdier Boulevard Unit 1003, Charleston 29414. Phone to let him know about attendance if you have a chance- (518)928-2411.
