Monthly Book Club: Galileo, A Life by James Reston Jr.
Washington, D.C. | Brown Club of Washington, D.C.
6:00 pm, Location and directions will be provided upon RSVP
This biography of Galileo was inspired by the 350th anniversary of Galileo's death in 1992; interest in Galileo was also reflected in NASA's Galileo mission to Jupiter launched in 1989 (Galileo, appropriately, had published his discovery of Jupiter's moons with his telescope in 1610) and by Pope John Paul II's 13-year reconsideration of the "Galileo affair," ending on October 31, 1992, with the Pope's admission that the matter had finally been "resolved." Reston, however, does not call this "a posthumous Roman triumph." (American Library Association). The book deals with science vs. religion, the politics of Renaissance Florence, the Inquisition. Cost: $6 - $8 for dinner provided. Contact/RSVP: Debbie Cooney ’67.
