Non-Fiction: New and Noteworthy
59 St. George St
This lively workshop examines non-fiction books written in the last few years, in whole or in part, that draw attention to issues we want to talk about. Some of the books likely to be read, presented and discussed are: Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman; The Noise of Time by Julian Barnes; Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance; and The Return of History by Jennifer Welsh. Participants' suggestions will also be considered.
