PLG Nonfiction Book Group discusses Open Veins of Latin America

Led by PLG store manager Geo, our nonfiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For June, the group discusses Open Veins of Latin America, a “powerfully persuasive exposé which all students of Latin American and U.S. history must read” (Choice) by Eduardo Galeano. Galeano charts Latin American history not through chronology or geology or political successions, but instead according to the exploitations this region has suffered at the hands of imperialistic nations. Readers interested in great historical, economic, political, and social writing will be awestruck by this analytical achievement, and readers of all types will be overwhelmed by the unforgettable way in which Galeano makes history speak.

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