Book Club Meeting

All AWCH members are cordially invited to join the Book Club on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 7:00PM.

The Book Club will be discussing Catherine The Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert Massie at our January meeting. 

"This is a masterpiece of narrative biography, the extraordinary story of an obscure German princess who became one of the most remarkable, powerful and captivating women in history. Born into a minor noble family, Catherine transformed herself into empress of Russia by sheer determination. For thirty-four years, the government, foreign policy, cultural development and welfare of the Russian people were in her hands. She dealt with domestic rebellion, foreign wars and the tidal wave of political change and violence churned up by the French Revolution. Catherine's family, friends, ministers, generals, lovers and enemies - all are here, vividly brought to life. History offers few stories richer than that of Catherine the Great. In this book, an eternally fascinating woman is returned to Life." (Penguin Random House)
