September Book of the Month Club: Rilla of Ingleside or The Guns of August

September 4, 2018

If you are joining in on the book of the month with Twenty History Lane (and we hope you will!) then for September we have two different options we are reading! You can choose to read one or both this month and we look forward to discussing them at the end of the month! For the month of September we will be focusing on the decade of 1910-1919 and the book choices are: 

Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery
or
The Guns of August by Barbara W. Tuchman

Rilla of Ingleside, the 8th book in the popular "Anne of Green Gables" series tells the story of Anne's 14-year old daughter, Rilla. During this sweet coming of age book, Rilla dreams of her first dance and hoping for her first kiss but her life is disrupted and changed when her brother's go leave to fight in the "Great War". Originally published in 1921, L.M. Montgomery brings to light the way the war shaped and affected family members during this time. 

The Guns of August, a Pulitzer Prize-winning book, by Barbara W. Tuchman, tells the story of the first month of World War I. Weaving historical details and characters, Tuchman shares the importance of the first 30 days of the summer of 1914 that will determine the course of the war. 

If you are joining in and reading Rilla of Ingleside or The Guns of August, this month and purchase a copy of one or both please email Twenty History Lane with proof of purchase (wherever you purchase it!).

August Book of the Month Club: Audacity

August 6, 2018

If you are joining in on the book of the month with Twenty History Lane (and we hope you will!) then for August we are reading Audacity, by Melanie Crowder. 

Published in 2016, Audacity tells the inspiring story of Clara Lemlich, a young woman who emigrated from Russia to New York at the turn of the 20th century and whose fight for equal rights led to the largest strike by women in American history. Here is the synopsis from the back cover:

"A gorgeously told novel in verse written with intimacy and power, Audacity is inspired by the real-life story of Clara Lemlich, a spirited young woman who emigrated from Russia to New York at the turn of the twentieth century and fought tenaciously for equal rights. Bucking the norms of both her traditional Jewish family and societal conventions, Clara refuses to accept substandard working conditions in the factories on Manhattan's Lower East Side. For years, Clara devotes herself to the labor fight, speaking up for those who suffer in silence. In time, Clara convinces the women in the factories to strike, organize, and unionize, culminating in the famous Uprising of the 20,000. Powerful, breathtaking, and inspiring, Audacity is the story of a remarkable young woman, whose passion and selfless devotion to her cause changed the world."

If you are joining in and reading Audacity this month and purchase a copy please email Twenty History Lane with proof of purchase. TWL is also committed to giving back to the community through The Novel Garden. Each month there will be a book of the month to read that will coincide with the time frame + focus that is being highlighted.

All you need to do is send us an email to: twentyhistorylane@gmail.com with a confirmation of receipt of payment!
