Bureau Book Club #5: White Girls, by Hilton Als

The Bureau Book Club is a home for freewheeling discussion about the books and the issues that captivate us. Inspired by the conversations that break out after so many of the Bureau’s more formal events, we’ll have a one-hour session each month about a different work of fiction or non-fiction. Buy the book from the Bureau and get a 10% discount. We know you have busy lives: if you can’t finish the whole book, or read it a while ago, why not come and talk about however much you’ve read/can remember? Just come prepared with a favorite quote.

Bureau Book Club #5 will discuss: White Girls, by Hilton Als and will be moderated by Ben Miller.

Hilton Als’ memoir-essays in White Girls mostly concern themselves with a category of “white girl” that encompasses Andre Leon Talley, Truman Capote, Michael Jackson, Diana Vreeland, Louise Brooks, Malcolm X, and Flannery O’Connor. Fictional or nonfictional, these essays are true and vivid and compelling.

Purchase White Girls from the Bureau before January 4 and receive a 10% discount!
