The Literature at Lunch Book Club will discuss “Mountains Beyond Mountains” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tracy Kidder at today’s meeting at noon at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. Kidder explores the rich drama that is the life and work of Paul Farmer who is a doctor, Harvard professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, and recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant.

Working in Haiti since 1982, he founded Partners in Health, a private organization that is the only health-care provider for hundreds of thousands of peasants in the Central Plateau. Here Farmer pioneered a community-based method to cure tuberculosis that is widely copied today. Join the club for a discussion of this fascinating man and how he manages to fund and implement his projects to improve the health and lives of the poor.
