Nonfiction Book Group
Discussing Taking a Long Look by Vivian Gornick
Hosted by our neighbors at Die Stammkneipe Brooklyn (710 Fulton St.) and led by a Greenlight bookseller, our nonfiction book group meets monthly to read and discuss the most fascinating topics in nonfiction. For September, the group discusses Taking a Long Look, from one of our most vital and incisive writers on literature, feminism, and knowing one's self. In these essays, Gornick explores the lives and literature of some of our most influential authors; the cultural impact of Silent Spring and Uncle Tom's Cabin; and the characters you might only find in a New York barber shop or midtown bus terminal. Even more, Taking a Long Look brings back into print her incendiary essays, first published in the Village Voice, championing the emergence of the women's liberation movement of the 1970s.
Book group meetings will be held in DSK's private meeting space; enter through the bar. Drinks and food available for purchase; one item purchase minimum is encouraged!
