Nonfiction Book Club

Join us for the October meeting of the Browsers Nonfiction Book Club

We will discuss Theft by Finding: Diaries (1977-2002) by David Sedaris. The discussion will be led by customer Lauren Danner. If you have any questions, please email Andrea.

More about the book:

For forty years, David Sedaris has kept a diary in which he records everything that captures his attention-overheard comments, salacious gossip, soap opera plot twists, secrets confided by total strangers. These observations are the source code for his finest work, and through them he has honed his cunning, surprising sentences.

Now, Sedaris shares his private writings with the world. Theft by Finding, the first of two volumes, is the story of how a drug-abusing dropout with a weakness for the International House of Pancakes and a chronic inability to hold down a real job became one of the funniest people on the planet.

Written with a sharp eye and ear for the bizarre, the beautiful, and the uncomfortable, and with a generosity of spirit that even a misanthropic sense of humor can't fully disguise, Theft By Finding proves that Sedaris is one of our great modern observers. It's a potent reminder that when you're as perceptive and curious as Sedaris, there's no such thing as a boring day.

Our book discussions aim to bring people together to talk about books in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Our meetings are inclusive; we invite you to attend. You don't have to RSVP, just come and enjoy a lively discussion about the chosen book with other readers.

The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
