A Fascinating Profile of Michael May

Crashing ThroughHere's a book everyone in Dubuque should read!

Crashing Through: A True Story of Risk, Adventure, and the Man Who Dared to See by Robert Kurson

Synopsis: "A fascinating profile of Michael May, a man blinded by a chemical explosion at the age of three, describes his successful life as a CIA analyst, champion skier, entrepreneur, and family man, who is offered a rare chance to see once again through risky, cutting-edge stem-cell transplant surgery."

Thanks to Dave and Sandy Parrett for thinking this is funny.

    Hi, Betty,

    We just finished the next Book Club selection.

    You have probably searched this out already...

    There are 2 especially good websites to go on. Thought you might like to share them with our CSPL Book Clubbers you have on e-mail. Would be interesting for them to see the sites prior to Tues. nights meeting.
