You will come away knowing what you need to do, and when you need to do it, to take complete control of the process. Call 281-376-4610 for more information or go to www.hcpl.net to register.

The Tuesday evening book club will discuss the History of the World in 100 objects by Neil MacGregor on January 12th @ 7:00pm

Persons who love to read and discuss what they have read join in informal conversation. Everyone is welcome. This month’s book will be  History of the World in 100 objects by Neil MacGregor. 

Summary

From the renowned director of the British Museum, a kaleidoscopic history of humanity told through things we have made.

When did people first start to wear jewelry or play music? When were cows domesticated and why do we feed their milk to our children? Where were the first cities and what made them succeed? Who invented math-or came up with money?
