A librarian and a writer again invite you to read an innovative book and join them in lively conversation. This time it's Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders, a novel that imagines one night in the White House with the comings and goings in a Georgetown cemetery during the first year of the Civil War. Saunders cites primary sources both invented and real and creates rich dialog. For three sessions, we will take a deep dive into the roots of when we first became a divided nation. Required reading: Lincoln in the Bardo, George Saunders ($13)
