Book group takes closer look at China

This fall, a book discussion course in Bay Village will take a look at China: From Concubines to Communism. Sound interesting? Come join us and see for yourself.

In the course, our leader/teacher, Enid Kurtz, will guide us through our readings and discussions. There will be eight classes, every Monday beginning on Sept. 21, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, featuring two books. The first is "Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China" by Yung Chang, published in 1991. This book has the intimacy of a memoir and the panoramic sweep of eyewitness history as it follows three generations of women whose lives and fortunes mirror tumultuous 20th century China. Our second book, "Nixon and Mao: The Week that Changed the World," by renowned historian Margaret MacMillan, is a nonfiction book covering the famous meeting between these two world leaders.

All classes are held at Bay United Methodist Church, located at 29931 Lake Road. The cost of the course is $80. Men and women of any age are welcome to attend. If interested, please contact Marianne Wagner at 440-808-0076. More information can also be found at

This course is offered by the Off-Campus Studies program in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University's Association for Continuing Education (ACE).
