Following the SPPG Holiday party, join us at the Bedford Academy for drinks, snacks, and networking starting at 7. See you there!
Next up book is Blood: The Stuff of Life by Lawrence Hill
Blood: The Stuff of Life is also the 2013 Massey lecture, which means you can catch it all on the CBC Ideas podcast as the lectures unfold across the country. Note, ABC will be meeting a few days after the Massey lecture (to discuss the whole book),
Join ABC on Wednesday, November 6th at 7:30pm, and get to the heart of the matter!
Mark your calendars! The first SPPG Pub Night is October 2nd, 5:30 pm at the Pilot (22 Cumberland Street), come by for some snacks, drinks and networking!
*Welcome to the newest alumni, the MPP Class of 2013!
Next meeting: Wednesday September 25th
The book: Economics for the Rest of Us: Debunking the Science That Makes Life Dismal by Moshe Adler
Worried about income inequality? Put down Freeland’s Plutocrats or McQuaig’s The Trouble with Billionaires now! ABC is reading Moshe Adler’s highly accessible book that tackles two myths of mainstream economic theory that have long justified the process that creates inequality to begin with. The evening will no doubt maximize our pareto efficiency thanks to our in-house economist adding some enlightening commentary to the discussion.
Location: Mark Stabile’s home (registrants to the Book Club will be emailed his address closer to the date, or you can contact the organizers for the address)
Time: 7pm – 9pm
Please bring a bottle of wine to share or some light snacks!
And if a 200-page book (with pictures… er, charts) is just too much before September 25th, check out a review or interview with Adler instead.
Moshe Pit – Adler’s old blog (what a name!)
Looking forward to seeing you there!!

After a short hiatus, Alumni Book Club is re-launching in August!
