Our January Book Club will feature Working: Researching, Interviewing, Writing by Robert A. Caro.
“Caro recalls the moments at which he came to understand that he wanted to write not just about the men who wielded power but about the people and the politics that were shaped by that power. And he talks about the importance to him of the writing itself, of how he tries to infuse it with a sense of place and mood to bring characters and situations to life on the page. Taken together, these reminiscences–some previously published, some written expressly for this book–bring into focus the passion, the wry self-deprecation, and the integrity with which this brilliant historian has always approached his work.”
The discussion will take place on January 12 at 4:00 p.m. as a hybrid event. Books will be available to pick up at the circulation desk!
