Author: 
Mark Twain
Title: 
The Diaries of Adam and Eve

This gloriously funny dialogue between the first man and woman is presented along with a number of other Twain pieces on Adam and Eve—including excerpts from his letters and diaries—as well as extracts from Eve's autobiography. By giving a voice to Adam and Eve and hitting all the notes on the literary scale—from the intimate to the comical, from the journalistic to the idyllic—this classic volume displays the brilliance and wit for which Mark Twain is rightly considered one of the greatest satirists of all time. This discussion will also incorporate the other stories and works included in the Prometheus Book edition.  Read more about Bailey Cove Evening: The Diaries of Adam and Eve

Barack Obama
Title: 
The Audacity of Hope

Before becoming the 44th President-elect of the United States, in July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. One phrase in particular anchored itself in listeners’ minds, a reminder that for all the discord and struggle to be found in our history as a nation, we have always been guided by a dogged optimism in the future, or what President Obama called "the audacity of hope." Sandwiched between Martin Luther King Day three days before and Presidents Day a few weeks later, this discussion seems timely.

Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living

Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living by Carrie Tiffany
The "Better-Farming Train" slides through the wheat fields and small towns of 1930s Australia, bringing advice to farmers.

In an atmosphere of heady idealism, they settle in the impoverished Mallee farmland with the ambition of transforming the land through science.

Title: 
The Road

The Road by Cormac McCarthy
The Road is the story of a journey which imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

River of Doubt

River of Doubt by Candice Millard
After his humiliating election defeat in 1912, Roosevelt set his sights on the most punishing physical challenge he could find: the first descent of an unmapped, rapids-choked tributary of the Amazon. Together with his son Kermit and Brazil's most famous explorer, Candido Mariano da Silva Rondon, Roosevelt accomplished a feat so great that many at the time refused to believe it. In the process, he changed the map of the Western Hemisphere forever. Read more about Bailey Cove Evening: River of Doubt
