The next meeting of Thetford’s informal nonfiction book discussion group will take place at Latham Library on Thetford Hill on Tuesday September 27th at 7 pm.
We will be discussing The Gene by Siddhartha Mukherjee. As this is a long book, we have decided to continue our discussion of it at our October meeting. Mukherjee’s previous book, The Emperor of All Maladies, a “biography” of cancer, won the Pulitzer Prize. His book The Gene has been nominated for the Royal Society Prize, a kind of Nobel for science writing.
The book may be obtained from your local library, via interlibrary loan, possibly as an audio or e-book via ListenUp Vermont or in New Hampshire, New Hampshire Downloadable Books. Users need only get a barcode number from their local library to use the services. Or you can obtain the book from your favorite local bookseller, or via www.bookfinder.com, the aggregator site for booksellers both large and small from all over the world, and for books both new and secondhand.
All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you.
