Fort Greene Nonfiction Book Group discusses They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us
Led by Greenlight bookseller Katie, 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 February, the group discusses poet, essayist, and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib’s They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us. In essays that have been published by the New York Times, MTV, and Pitchfork, among others—along with original, previously unreleased essays—Abdurraqib uses music and culture as a lens through which to view our world, so that we might better understand ourselves, and in so doing proves himself a bellwether for our times. Whether he's attending a Bruce Springsteen concert the day after visiting Michael Brown's grave or discussing public displays of affection at a Carly Rae Jepsen show, he writes with a poignancy and magnetism that resonates profoundly. In an age of confusion, fear, and loss, Abdurraqib's is a voice that matters.
Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
