Join us at NHM Virtual Book Club, facilitated by our Resident Scholar Dr. Katherine Kelaidis & our Manager of Special Events Cairo Dye. Each month the NHM Book Club will choose a book that is either inspired by the Hellenic legacy or by a
Greek American author (and sometimes both!). Then we
will gather to discuss the book on Zoom!
Book Club is free to join and meets on the
third Thursday of each month at 7pm CST
Our December Book Club Title is
Calypso by David Sedaris
Calypso is the 10th collection of essays by Greek American satirist and essayists David Sedaris. Perhaps the most critically and commercially successful Greek American writer of all time, Sedaris’s 10th collection of essays is a funny and raw exploration of topics as wide ranging and unexpected as politics, aging, and suicide--all handled deftly by Sedaris’s incomparable pen. The Guardian called Calypso “Sedaris’s most truthful work yet.”
