University Book Club - Every Man Dies Alone September 2021

Please join our book club for our next meeting on 9 September 2021 from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. It will take place online via Zoom. We will discuss ‘Every Man Dies Alone’ by Hans Fallada (translated by Michael Hoffman). Based on true events, the book presents a richly detailed portrait of life in Berlin under the Nazis and tells the sweeping saga of one working-class couple who decides to take a stand when their only son is killed at the front. With nothing but their grief and each other against the awesome power of the Reich, they launch a simple, clandestine resistance campaign that soon has an enraged Gestapo on their trail, and a world of terrified neighbors and cynical snitches ready to turn them in.

But Tony Miller takes a scalpel to this tall tale and both debunks the myth and discovers their true history. In doing so, he opens a window on a fascinating period in Chinese history and introduces an extraordinary cast of characters as he leads the reader clue by clue to the real provenance of these beautiful enigmas.

Yale Hiking Trip to Tai O from Tung Chung

On Saturday, July 17, the Yale Club Hiking Group will be heading from Tung Chung to Tai O on what used to be our annual summer Lantau Island hike. Tai O is a fishing town built on stilts, so an interesting site to see if you have never been there. We will be able to buy fresh lychees from the villagers along the way. There is also a small chance that we will see the rare Pink Dolphins at sea. For a description of the hike, see https://www.localiiz.com/post/living-hiking-tung-chung-tai-o-hike-tung-o-ancient-trail-hong-kong

We're meeting up at 9:45 am at Tung Chung MTR Station, Exit B. We'll finish at the old fishing village of Tai O, where we'll have lunch at one of the local restaurants. Afterwards, we'll head back to the Tung Chung MTR station by bus.

University Book Club Meeting on “The Invention of Nature: The Adventures of Alexander von Humboldt” (Thurs, June 10)

The University Book Club’s next meeting will be on 10 June and will take place online via Zoom. Join us to discuss ‘The Invention of Nature: The Adventures of Alexander von Humboldt, the Lost Hero of Science’ by Andrea Wulf. Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was the most famous scientist of his age, a visionary German naturalist and polymath whose discoveries forever changed the way we understand the natural world. Among his most revolutionary ideas was a radical conception of nature as a complex and interconnected global force that does not exist for the use of humankind alone. In this illuminating biography, Andrea Wulf brings Humboldt’s extraordinary life back into focus. ‘The Invention of Nature’ reveals the myriad ways in which Humboldt’s ideas form the foundation of modern environmentalism—and reminds us why they are as prescient and vital as ever.
