Literary, military, art, film and drama, nature . . . we will tread all over the biographical genre to find little treasures and great epic books. Dare Wright, Robert E. Lee, Kenneth Clark and David Sedaris . . . how about John Lewis’s narration through graphic art of his walk across the Edmund Pettus bridge? Whether we choose one or none of the authors mentioned, come join us and let’s find out about someone spectacular.
The Biography Book Club meets the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.
