Reading The Past Book Club
Time & Location
About The Event
Reading the Past offers readers a chance to delve into history. Each month, we’ll read a different work of history, and discuss how the author brought the past to life. We’ll talk narratives, archives and analysis—and assess James Baldwin’s assertion that “history is literally present in all that we do.” This book club is hosted by historian Dr Hollie Pich and Better Read's Gianluca Dragone, on the 2nd Wednesday of every month.
Dr Hollie Pich is a historian of race, gender, and the law in the twentieth-century American South. She is currently working on her first book, Black Memphis: Everyday Citizenship in a Jim Crow City.
