In celebration of Local & Community History Month, we’ll be reading this 2017 National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist for Nonfiction. “As Markel chronicles the Kelloggs’ fascinating … ascent into the pantheon of American industrialists, we see the vast changes in American social mores that took shape in diet, health, medicine, philanthropy, & food manufacturing during seven decades—changing the lives of millions & helping to shape our industrial age” (Amazon). This title is available in regular print & audiobook through MeLCat. Whether you attend regularly or this is your first meeting – all participants are welcome!
