    DA Münster/Osnabrück Book Club

    For this installment of our quarterly (Tri-annual?) Book Club, we will be tackling Kent Russell's "In the Land of Good Living: A Journey to the Heart of Florida." And why not? Florida is a state that we have been told for decades is about turn blue because of demographics. And yet, it remains a bastion of red. The book has been described as "a wickedly smart, funny, and irresistibly off-kilter account of an improbable thousand-mile journey on foot into the heart of modern Florida, the state that Russell calls America Concentrate."

    Munich Chapter Election

    With the arrival of COVID, our election by-laws have had to be rewritten so we may have a virtual election. On February 20, 2021 we are holding the Munich Chapter Officer elections. We vote every two years for new officers, naturally in the odd years, so our elections do not coincide with our American elections. We will be voting on a Chair, Vice Chair, GOTV Coordinator, Press Coordinator and Secretary. This is a commitment of two years. If you are interested, please contact Emily Froemel standing Munich Chapter Chair HERE. Per COVID regulations, we are still meeting on Zoom. This election is open to all members. Please RSVP and come. Let’s see if we can have a 70% vote in Munich as well…

    The German Chairmanship will send out an email that explains the voting process with all the new by-laws and people you can contact.

    DA Germany Reads A Promised Land

    55361205._SY475_.jpg

    Join us as we discuss "A Promised Land" by Barack Obama.

    The book is a riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making, from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy.

    In the stirring and highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from a young man searching for his identity to the leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

    The book is available in hardback, e-book, and audiobook format from many booksellers.

    We look forward to discussing this interesting book with you. RSVP to receive the Zoom link.

    Book Club & Author Talk: The Dancing Girl and the Turtle

    We are thrilled to be hosting author Karen Kao for a book club discussion on February 28th, 2021, at 2 P.M. Berlin time. We will be discussing her debut novel The Dancing Girl and the Turtle. Described as an “an ambitious, striking addition to the novels showing the sleazy side of 1930s Shanghai” by bookish.asia, it is the first in a quartet of interlocking novels set in Shanghai from 1929 to 1954.

    Read more about the quartet and KarenKao on her website at https://inkstonepress.com/ and message us to pre-order a book! Through the eyes of the dancer, Song Anyi, and her brother Kang, the Shanghai Quartet spans a tumultuous time in Chinese history: war with the Japanese, the influx of stateless Jews into Shanghai, civil war and revolution. How does the love of a sister destroy her brother and all those around him?      

    Please contact anyaleonhard14@gmail.com for information on pre-ordering a book.
