      I have not seen it. but I saw a brief clip of about 20 B24's taking off from the movie, which made me think about reading the book. Once I've finished reading I'll trying and find the movie!

      I'm 2/3rds through Steven Pinker's "The Better Angels of Our Nature" which we're reading in an Evolution group I joined about 5 years ago. Pinker makes a fascinating case for there being gradually less wars and mass killings
      in the world since WW-2.

      I recently finished Ron Chernow's "Hamilton" -- a l--o--n--g book (slightly over 700 pages, IIRC) but it's a very
      worthwhile read if you care much about the history of the American nation. I read it because I'd just previously
      read the book (which includes the lyrics and many photos) of Miranda's musical "Hamilton" which he was inspired
      to write immediately after reading Chernow's book. I can understand why -- if I had Miranda's talent and background,
      I would, too. Our retired faculty group, KU's Endacott Society, has a "Great Books" group and I suggested we read
      Chernow's "Hamilton" next and they agreed -- (I hope they don't impeach me). One of our members is urging us to
      also include
      a few of Hamilton's "Federalist Papers" and I think we will.

      A "progressive Christianity" reading group I'm in (we're largely Episcopalians but have some other denominations, too)
      is currently reading Spong's "Why Christianity Must Change or Die." We read a chapter or 2 aloud (we go clockwise
      around the table and each person reads the next paragraph) and then we discuss it either at the end of the chapter or
      any point before that. We meet twice a month for 90 minutes, the 1st & 3rd Wed. afternoons.

      OH! I forgot -- our play reading group in Endacott is about to read Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" and, since
      I help lead it, I got a copy and read it. It's not a very "happy" play -- it's about various ways guilt is handled among family members and acquaintances.

      Listening to Headhunters by Jo Nesbo. It's a mystery/thriller. A clever and elegant portrait of the dark excesses of our corporate culture as revealed through a desperate cat-and-mouse game between figures reaching for the top of the heap.

      Reading I Let You Go by Clare MacKintosh. It's a clever psychological thriller. A friend of mine read it and said we needed to convene a "mini book group" so we can discuss it. I'm halfway through and loving it so far.
