RIVER OF DOUBT Belgrade's book club choice of the month

RIVER OF DOUBT Belgrade's book club choice of the month

On Friday, Aug. 20, 2010 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. the Belgrade R.E.A.D. book club will meet to discuss "River of Doubt" by Candice Millard.

A review of this book stated that if "River of Doubt" were required reading in school, more people would fall in love with history.  So true!

Can you imagine former President Theodore Roosevelt traveling with a group of explorers and naturalists into  an uncharted Amazon tributary, the River of Doubt, not knowing if they will make it out alive?  Millard describes the events of this 1914 ill fated expedition which nearly cost Roosevelt his life.

The Belgrade R.E.A.D. book club meets every third Friday of the month for discussion and treats.
