Nonfiction Book Group

Live via Zoom:
Wednesday, May 19, 6:00 PM ET
Nonfiction Book Group with Geo
Discussion of Patrimony

Led (virtually!) by Greenlight bookseller Geo, our nonfiction book group meets monthly to read and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For May, the group discusses Philip Roth’s National Book Critics Circle Award-winning Patrimony. This true story touches the emotions as strongly as anything Roth has ever written. Roth watches as his eighty-six-year-old father—famous for his vigor, charm, and his repertoire of Newark recollections—battles with the brain tumor that will kill him. The son, full of love, anxiety, and dread, accompanies his father through each fearful stage of his final ordeal, and, as he does so, discloses the survivalist tenacity that has distinguished his father's long, stubborn engagement with life.
