Nonfiction Book Group
Second Tuesday of the Month

On the second Tuesday of the each month at 7 pm, the Chatham Bookstore hosts a nonfiction book group focusing on current affairs, history and biography. 

In February, the group will discuss Learning from the Germans: Race and the Memory of Evil by Susan Neiman.
“Susan Neiman, a citizen-philosopher who has never shied from difficult topics, has mustered her stylish pen, formidable intelligence, and unique experience as a southern Jewish expat in Germany to produce a nuanced work of conscience with urgent relevance today.” –Diane McWhorter, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Carry Me Home: Birmingham, Alabama: The Climactic Battle of the Civil Rights Revolution
