December 8 Tuesday

Merrimac Zoomers Book Club

7:30 – 8:30 PM Since the November meeting had to be cancelled, we’ll be discussing the book, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know by Malcolm Gladwell. Talking to Strangers is a non-fiction book all about what happens when we encounter people we don’t know, why it often goes terribly wrong, and what it says about us. Through a series of puzzles, encounters and misunderstandings, from little-known stories to infamous legal cases, Gladwell takes us on a journey through the unexpected. Email: tshaw@merrimaclibrary.org to receive the meeting link.
