Nonfiction Book Group
Second Tuesday of the Month

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


For more information, please contact .

On April 14th, the group will discuss Spying on the South by Tony Horwitz.
“In the long dark years before the Civil War, Frederick Law Olmsted toured the South by stage, by boat, by train, and by foot, reporting on a nation unraveling. Tony Horwitz does much more than follow in Olmsted’s footsteps in this searching travel narrative: he chronicles an American agony, the pain of division, the anguish of uncertainty. But he finds, too, an enduring American spirit of generosity, and commonweal, and curiosity.” – Jill Lepore

For May, the group will read Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Team of Rivals recounts Lincoln’s capacity to marshal the talents of his  presidential competitors into a cabinet that worked to preserve the Union and end the Civil War.
