The Greenwich Library's Foreign Affairs Book Club will take an in-depth look at the story of a real-life Robin Hood who views globalization at its philosophical core--that "the only real nation is humanity."
The Foreign Affairs Book Club will discuss Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder on Tuesday, May 18, at 7 p.m., in the Jewel.
Mountains Beyond Mountains tells the true story of Dr. Paul Farmer, who has followed his life's calling to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need it most. The book follows Farmer, a renowned infectious disease specialist, from Harvard to Haiti, Peru, Cuba and Russia as he changes minds and practices through his dedication and philosophy.
The Foreign Affairs Book Club meets every third Tuesday of the month. New participants are always welcome. The group will discuss The Year that Changed the World by Michael Meyer on June 15.
