August 7th: The Lies of Spies
Bob is our meeting leader when we read Tim Tigner’s The Lies of Spies. We will journey beneath the diplomatic veneer of international politics and beyond the reach of conventional military operations into the epicenter of clandestine affairs — where diplomats dance and spies collide in wars that never make the news. With the American economy in Russia's crosshairs, the White House develops a plan for derailing Russian aggression — a way-off-the-books, high risk-reward plan. With plans in place and spies undercover, each president is confident that he has outplayed the other — until everything goes wrong. The novel will keep you guessing from first page to last with its suspenseful twists and unpredictable turns.
September 11th: Small Great Things
(Meeting the second Monday because of Labor Day)
The novel selected is Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. Ruth Jefferson, an African American nurse at a Connecticut hospital, is barred from tending to a newborn by the baby’s white supremacist parents. The baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is on duty, briefly alone in the nursery. Should she disobey the order she’s been given by the hospital and try to save the baby? With empathy, intelligence and candor, the author tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice and compassion — and doesn’t offer easy answers. "A gripping courtroom drama…Given the current political climate, it is quite prescient and worthwhile." —The New York Times.
October 2nd: The Handmaid's Tale
Ed will lead the discussion in October when we read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. The story is told though the eyes of Offred, a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, when she played with and protected her daughter, when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now…
November 6th: The Last Good Girl
Diana Ware will facilitate our discussion of The Last Good Girl by Allison Leotta. The author writes novels drawing on her experiences as a federal sex-crimes prosecutor in Washington, D.C. The story is about the disappearance of a college girl and the issue of campus sex assaults. “A delicious tale of suspense that will have readers hurrying to find out what happens but at the same time wanting to savor each page.” — Library Journal.

HEART DEFIBRILLATOR NOW AVAILABLE FOR USE AT 55 EAST ERIE
The 55 East Erie Condominium Association is proud to announce that a portable heart defibrillator is now available for emergency use in the building. The Board authorized its purchase and staff training on it in our continuing effort to make our building the best it can be – with health and safety of our residents our first priority!
Each year, more than a quarter-million Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest. According to medical experts, the key to survival is timely response including CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) or the use of a portable lifesaving device such as a heart defibrillator. The device is also known as an “automated external defibrillator” or “AED.”
If you or someone in your unit may be in cardiac arrest, it is important to first call 911 to request emergency medical attention.
Only after 911 has been called should you call the front desk at (312) 440-9917 to request the defibrillator, which a member of the door staff will then bring to your unit for use. The door staff has received training on how to operate the device. The AED is located on the first floor in close proximity to the Door staff desk.
You do not need to be a medical professional to use the device to treat a person in cardiac arrest. The AED device guides the user through the process with audible and visual prompts. The American Heart Association
notes that thousands of lives could be saved annually by prompt use of defibrillators.
If you would like to become familiar with the equipment, location and emergency procedures please make an appointment with the Management Office
Our hope is that the AED will never be needed. But if it is ever needed our building is prepared!
