Tribe by Sebastian Junger

Wednesday • January 10 • 6pm

U District store

Join True Grace book club for a lively discussion of this month's book.

Upon their return from war, more and more veterans are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and struggling with suicidal thoughts. But the traumas they experienced while deployed may not be the only cause. As award-winning journalist Sebastian Junger argues in Tribe, one of the greatest difficulties soldiers face may be the shift from the tribe-like society of military life to our individualistic Western culture. Combining history, psychology, and anthropology, Junger explores why we're stronger when we come together and what we can all learn about loyalty, belonging, and meaning from tribal societies.

East West Street by Philippe Sands

Mill Creek store

Join The Odd Shelf book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Winner of the 2016 Baillie Gifford Prize for non-fiction

Part detective story and part moving family history, East West Street explores the development of two profound legal concepts formed in the wake of the unprecedented atrocities of Hitler's Third Reich: "genocide" and "crimes against humanity." Delving into the lives of three men, the two Polish lawyers who coined the terms and the man who acted as Hitler's personal legal counsel, it illuminates the way our perception of the world was changed by mass murder.

Explore the story of an unlikely marriage at a crossroads with insights from the author! NPR books commentator and Seattle's most famous librarian, Nancy Pearl, gives us the amazing opportunity to chat about her riveting debut novel, George and Lizzie, in an intimate book club setting.

George and Lizzie have radically different understandings of what love and marriage should be. George grew up in a warm and loving family, while Lizzie grew up as the child of two famous psychologists who viewed her as an in-house experiment. Over the years, nothing has changed—George is happy; Lizzie remains unfulfilled. Discover a story of new and past loves, old scars, and an imperfect marriage at its defining moments.
