The Guild book group will discuss Leadership in Turbulent Times, by Doris Kearns Goodwin, published by Simon & Schuster, 2018.

An Amazon Best Book of September 2018, “Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin demonstrates how leaders are made, not born, as she thoughtfully explores the highs and lows of four U.S. presidents who faced moments of horrific national crisis. Goodwin's clean, assured sentences set the stage as each future president discovers within himself the desire to enter politics, the calamitous blows that knocked each one down, and how they tackled the struggles that tore at the sinews of the country”. —Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review.

The Guild book group is open to all members and is free of charge. The meetings are always educational, fun, and offer an excellent way to get to know your peers in the Guild. Ideas and suggestions for improving tour guiding skills are discussed and each participant earns one Continuing Educational Unit for attending.

A new location, more convenient for many members, has been chosen for the October meeting. Members planning to attend should please register on this page and start reading.
