Book Club members celebrating the Royal Wedding on May 19 with hats-a-plenty, tea and cookies.
The CRWC Book Club was founded in September, 2017 by Susan Yonts-Shepard, past president of CRWC, the club's Twitter afficionado, and staunch defender of the conservative way of life.

The book club's goal is to read books about, by, and for conservatives on all of the important issues of the day.

We meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Members can bring their own lunch.  The hostess provides drinks.

Come and join us!

When:

What:
American Pravda by James O'Keefe.

Howard Kurtz's Media Madness is written by a journalist about journalists. Kurtz descirbes the madness that took over the media as they tried to come to terms iwth a Trump presidency.

Everone present liked the book, finding it easy to read and perhaps surprisingly very fair.to Trump and his staff. Particularly touching was the picture painted of Sean Spicer and Kelly-Anne Conway's travails trying to deal with journalists that would be nice to their faces and then produce a very negative article.  If you didn't live through the era, the book would be very informative. For those like us who did experience it ourselves, there was little that the book had to teach us.

Defeating Jihad by Sebastian Gorka got mixed reviews from the group..

We all liked his explanation of the term "Jihad" and how its meaning has evolved over the years, but few were satisfied with his prescriptions for combatting the threat it poses, which lacked substance.

A surprising bonus for those who remember the Cold War was  Appendix A which contained the National Security Document (NSC-68) that analyzed the threat posed by the USSR. It is this document, perhaps, that carries the solution to the problem of defeating Jihad, just as it carried the solution to defeating communism.
