  1. Hi Kathryn, the book on Churchill sounds very interesting. I am a member of the Mount’s book club and we are finishing up A Woman of No Importance about Virginia Hall an American woman spy in occupied France during WWII. It was very well researched and a good study in the role women had in the early 20th century despite talent and opportunity.She was an amazing person who if she had been a man would have gotten much more recognition. I am also reading Building Better Families by Matthew Kelly. Matthew Kelly has an amazing gift to help people develop into the best versions of themselves by reinforcing the Catholic Faith and Values. I find his writings very challenging but also full of hope.

  2. Hi Kathryn –

    We loved hearing about your quarantine reads! They both sound like great choices that we will be adding to our reading list.

    Sending well wishes your way from the Office of Alumnae/i Relations and Giving!

  3. Loved Erik Larson’s “The Splendid and the Vile” about Churchill during WWII. Numerous new insights into this historical giant’s playful and disarming personality, also his recognition of the great value that outsiders (like Beaverbrook) bring (which successful companies also recognize), and up close and personal insights into the general populous who kept diaries which Larson used to fill in the entire painting of that period in the UK. Currently enjoying Andre Gide’s “The Counterfeiters” (1925), set in Paris, France and the best piece of literature I have read that both very successfully draws the reader in with a very keen sense of place and also an incisive view into the musings of the many very well drawn characters.
