July 9 The Last Neanderthal Claire Cameron

 

 

Two women are separated by millennia but linked by common experiences of early motherhood. 40,000 years ago, the last family of Neanderthals roams the earth. Girl is just coming of age and her family wants to find her a mate. But the unforgiving landscape takes its toll, and Girl is left alone to care for Runt, a foundling of unknown origin. In the modern day, an archaeologist works well into her pregnancy to excavate Neanderthal artifacts before her baby comes.

August 13 Howards End     Movie to be discussed also E. M. Forster

 

 

This novel describes social conventions, codes of conduct and relationships in England at the beginning of the 20th century. There are three families: capitalists with a fortune made in the colonies; siblings whose cultural pursuits have much in common with the Bloomsbury Group; and an impoverished young couple from a lower-class background. The idealistic, intelligent sisters seek to help the struggling couple and to rid the capitalists of their deep-seated social and economic prejudices.
