Obama’s Vineyard Vacation Day 2: Reading List, Ogletree Visit

VINEYARD HAVEN (CBS) – President Obama and his family had a quiet start to their weekend on Martha’s Vineyard Saturday.

They spent most of the day secluded on Blue Heron Farm.

The President then went to the Oak Bluffs home of Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree in the evening, for what the White House called a social event.

Ogletree taught both the president and first lady Michele Obama when they were students at Harvard Law School. He is a frequent summer visitor to the Vineyard.

Word about the president’s visit apparently leaked out.

One neighbor put up a sign that said “Welcome Mr. President to Alpine Street.”

The White House also released the president’s summer reading list.

During his trip to the Bunch of Grapes bookstore Friday, Mister Obama bought The Bayou Trilogy, a collection by Daniel Woodrell and Rodin’s Debutante, by Martha’s Vineyard seasonal resident Ward Just.

He also bought some books for his daughters.

The President also brought three books with him to the Vineyard – Cutting for Stone, a novel by Abraham Verghese; To the End of the Land, fiction by David Grossman, and The Warmth of Other Suns, the story of African-American migration from the South to Northern cities.

  • J.C.A.

    Maybe he should read “Economics…101”, get off his vacation horse and back to the business of running a flipping country. DONKEY !

  • prinr it

    What I think about WBZ and CBS in general.
    This is a News agency will not print what the people have to say. In fact they band you from their web page when you try to give your view of things. As we the people that live in a nation of free speech is this not an outrage!
    Why should we try (and I do say try) to make our point across on there site when it will not be printed any way.
    It is like we live in Russia or North Korea.
    Repress the people so there words won’t be heard and take side’s with big Oil & Government. I could keep going on & on. My point has been made.
    Boycott WBZ & CBS in general. They want you to see what they print!!!!!
    WE want to see what we think! This is after all a free America is it not?
