12/07 – New Art School presents Quintron and Miss Pussycat at Churchill’s – $8

SWEAT BOOKS BOOK CLUB: Our current selection is “Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tracy Kidder.*

From the back cover: “In medical school, Paul Farmer found his life’s calling: to cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. Tracy Kidder’s magnificent account shows how one person can make a difference in solving global health problems through a clear-eyed understanding of the interaction of politics, wealth, social systems, and disease. Profound and powerful, Mountains Beyond Mountains takes us from Harvard to Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia as Farmer changes people’s minds through his dedication to the philosophy that ‘the only real nation is humanity.'”

The meeting will be on Wednesday, November 29th at 8pm. Be there AND be square.
