November Nonfiction: Notes on a Foreign Country by Suzy Hansen
Come join us to discuss Notes on a Foreign Country: An American Abroad in a Post-American World, by Suzy Hansen. Hansen, who moved to Istanbul after 9/11, grapples with America's violent role in the world. In the period between 9/11 and the election of President Trump, Hansen lived in Turkey and traveled to Greece, Egypt, Afghanistan, Iran and the Mississippi Delta. She uses these places, their complex histories and fraught present, as lenses through which to look at her own nation. We hope you can join us for what will sure to be a fascinating discussion!

What we're about

If you read a lot of well-reviewed contemporary fiction and nonfiction, then this book club is for you! Each month, our members will vote on a work of fiction and/or nonfiction, mostly from the New York Times notable books list from the past 3-4 years. After reading the selection, we will come together and engage in a lively, in-depth discussion.

The book club will meet midweek in a Metro-accessible location (these days we meet in a cafe in Dupont Circle). If one month's pick doesn't interest you, wait until next month when we choose new titles! Our readers are passionate about books and our discussions are lively, interesting, and enlightening.

Happy reading, and we hope to see you at our future meetings!
