Can't Make This Stuff Up... A Non-Fiction Book Group

Posted by SeekonkLibrary

Join us for a lively discussion of But What If We’re Wrong? by Chuck Klosterman at the Seekonk Library on Tuesday, May 29th at 6:00 pm. In this month’s selection, Klosterman discusses a seemingly simple topic: the present. Though, he approaches it in a very unorthodox way. His discussion centers on the thesis that all of the truths we hold to, could one day prove to be wrong, as many concepts of the past have proven to be. Essentially, it is Klosterman’s goal to discuss the present as if it were the past. This book, as well as each following months’, will leave you wondering how this story could possibly be true. As it turns out, you can’t make this stuff up…

Our book group meets on the last Tuesday of every month at 6 PM and tackles a variety of nonfiction topics from gambling to birding and even mortality itself; it’s nonfiction that fiction readers can enjoy. New members are most welcome. Even if you only read a small portion of the book we’d love to hear what you’d have to say!
