Description

Nonfiction discussed in the Reader's Den, NYPL's online book discussion group, which began in January 2009. These titles examine subjects ranging from surfing to lexicography, from Middle Eastern history to the history of a Lower East Side tenement. There are also several recent biographies and memoirs. It's never too late to join the discussions and post a comment on one of the books listed, so we've included links back our blogs for each title. You can find a complete schedule of past and upcoming discussions at http://bit.ly/readersden_books. Please join in. Happy reading!
