Fort Greene Nonfiction Book Group discusses An African in Greenland
At Greene Grape Annex

Led by Greenlight bookseller Nick, our nonfiction book group in Fort Greene reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For April, the book group reads An African in Greenland by Tete-Michel Kpomassie. Tete-Michel Kpomassie was a teenager in Togo when he discovered a book about Greenland and knew that he must go there. Working his way north over nearly a decade, Kpomassie finally arrived in the country of his dreams. This brilliantly observed and superbly entertaining record of his adventures among the Inuit is a testament both to the wonderful strangeness of the human species and to the surprising sympathies that bind us all.

Greene Grape Annex is located at 753 Fulton Street, across the street from the bookstore.

Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
