Next Stanford / Princeton Book Club on January 7th!
Join us in Harvard Square for a discussion of The Barbarian Nurseries
For the first book club of 2018, we're diving into the great panoramic social novel that Los Angeles deserves—a twenty-first century, West Coast Bonfire of the Vanities by the only writer qualified to capture the city in all its glory and complexity.
Book: The Barbarian Nurseries by Héctor Tobar
New Place: John Harvard's 33 Dunster St, Cambridge, MA 02138
We will have a copy of the book on the table.
Date & Time: Sunday, Jan 7th, 6:30 PM
With The Barbarian Nurseries, Héctor Tobar gives our most misunderstood metropolis its great contemporary novel, taking us beyond the glimmer of Hollywood and deeper than camera-ready crime stories to reveal Southern California life as it really is, across its vast, sunshiny sprawl of classes, languages, dreams, and ambitions.
