History Book Club

July 11 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The History Book Club meets each month for a lively discussion of historical books of both fiction and nonfiction.  We meet at the Natick Community Center (so don’t look for us at the BFL!).  

This month, we are reading and discussing Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. 

According to goodreads.com, Lincoln in the Bardo is a literary experience unlike any other.  George Saunders built this unforgettable tale from the fact that when Abraham Lincoln was mourning his 11-year-old son, he visited the boy’s crypt several times alone to hold his boy’s body.  This supernatural story of love and loss unfolds in a graveyard over the course of a single night, narrated by a dazzling chorus of voices. 

Copies of Lincoln in the Bardo are available at the BFL or you can request one here.
