Preview and discuss The Powerbroker by Bonnie Boswell.

During the 1950s and 60s, civil rights leader Whitney Young navigated a divided society. He challenged America's white business and political leaders directly, but his efforts to open the doors for equal opportunity were often attacked by Black Americans who felt his methods were in contrast with the Black Power Movement of the time.

Preview and discuss Beauty is Embarrassing by Neil Berkeley

Artist Wayne White found early success as one of the creators of Pee-wee's Playhouse and now his "word" paintings, which feature pithy and often sarcastic text statements crafted onto vintage landscape paintings, have made him a darling of the fine art world.

This is a funny, irreverent story of the highs and lows of a commercial artist struggling to find peace and balance between his work and his art.
