Destiny of the Republic:

A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President

Candice Millard - 2012

     James Abram Garfield was one of the most extraordinary men ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, a renowned congressman, and a reluctant presidential candidate who took on the nation's corrupt political establishment. But four months after Garfield's inauguration in 1881, he was shot in the back by a deranged office-seeker named Charles Guiteau. Garfield survived the attack, but become the object of bitter, behind-the-scenes struggles for power—over his administration, over the nation's future, and, hauntingly, over his medical care. Meticulously researched, epic in scope, and pulsating with an intimate human focus and high-velocity narrative drive, The Destiny of the Republic brings alive a forgotten chapter of U.S. history.

The Pioneers

David McCullough - 2019

     Drawn in great part from a rare and all-but-unknown collection of diaries and letters by the key figures, The Pioneers is a uniquely American story of people whose ambition and courage led them to remarkable accomplishments. This is a revelatory and quintessentially American story, written with David McCullough’s signature narrative energy.

"Normal vs. Not Normal Aging

Teresa Youngstrom, RN

     This workshop will help members understand and recognize some of the distinct differences in “normal” and “not normal” aging by initially sharpening their observation and assessment skills. This course includes hands-on training methods, power point and engaging personal stories to establish greater knowledge of Dementia. There will be two physical dramatizations by Teresa, to allow the audience to formulate a mental picture of a normal brain managing a situation compared to a not normal brain managing the same situation. We will also address typical issues that occur from early stages of the condition, through mid-disease, and into the final care concerns that are part of the disease progression.
