Narrative Non-Fiction Book GroupConsider this your invitation to read and discuss Narrative Nonfiction. We will not be reading cookbooks (though there may be a recipe or two.) No self-improvement books, though you may find yourself changed for the better. We will be reading across the genres of nonfiction, from history to adventure, memoir/biography and beyond with books that read like a novel. You can view past book group selections here. Led by Reference Librarian Faith Lee, we meet on the first Thursday of the month at 10:00AM in the Hermann Foundation Meeting Room at the Main Library. Pick up a copy at the Reference Desk at the Main Library. We can't wait to see you.
