Book Club: 5th Sept - Measuring the World

Meet at 8pm towards the back of the White Lion Pub.

Measuring the World - by German author Daniel Kehlmann

This book became a huge best seller in Germany after it was published in 2005. Measuring the World recreates the parallel but contrasting lives of two geniuses of the German Enlightenment - the naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and the mathematician and physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss. Towards the end of the 18th century, these two brilliant young Germans set out to measure the world.

New members always welcome! Just turn up. We'll have a copy of the book on the table.
