Leela Corman’s graphic novel Unterzakhn (which is Yiddish for “underthings”) transports us into the Lower East Side of the early 1900s, following young immigrant twins Esther and Fanya as they grow up in -- and grow out of -- their community. Add some Yiddish to your vocabulary, experience her marvelous storytelling, and join us for a presentation and launch party! Facebook RSVP appreciated.

Our book club pick for March is Lifespan of a Fact, which is really only kinda sorta a book. It presents an original article on the suicide of a Vegas teen, written by John D'Agata, and the correspondence between him and his factchecker Jim Fingal on what facts were changed, why they were changed, and what does the word "fact" mean anyway? 10% off the month leading up to discussion!
