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 at Manuel's Tavern on the last Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
