Then and Now: A History and Pop Culture Book Group - THE DISAPPEARING SPOON

Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 11:30am

Do you love a good story? A story within a story? And knowing it is all true? The History and Pop Culture book group will read and discuss engaging, thought-provoking, and fun non-fiction. Whether you are a foodie, a history buff, a culture blogger or just like witty footnotes, we want your brain… but not in a-formaldehyde-in-a-jar kind of way. The book group will meet every fourth Saturday of the month at the lovely Housing Works Bookstore Cafe. Hosted by Brigid Harmon, the store’s dealer in all things history, Then and Now is free and open to all that are interested.

The first meeting will be Saturday, October 26 at 11:30AM in the cafe. The group will discuss Sam Kean's The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements. Our thanks to Back Bay Books for donating copies! E-mail book club leader Brigid to reserve one; limited quantities.
