The Humanities and the Professions Reading and Discussion Group was formed following NCG's 1987 Annual Meeting and uses great literary texts to examine complex social and moral dilemmas. NCG book club members meet approximately five times a year for a facilitated discussion and the opportunity to engage with one another through a shared love of literature.

The Lime Twig by John Hawkes

An English horse race, the Golden Bowl at Aldington, provides the background for John Hawkes' exciting novel, The Lime Twig, which tells of an ingenious plot to steal and race a horse under a false name. But it would be unfair to the reader to reveal what happens when a gang of professional crooks gets wind of the scheme and moves to muscle in on this bettors' dream of a long-odds situation. -goodreads
