Book Club – Strangers Drowning (Rescheduled)

Book Club – Strangers Drowning (Rescheduled)

To accommodate a watch party of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying game between the US Men’s National Team and Costa Rica (more info to come about this event), our next book club has been rescheduled.  Instead of meeting on Tuesday, November 15, we will meet on Tuesday, December 6 at 6:00pm.

Book Club is open to parents, alums, and all friends of the school.  You are welcome to attend regularly or only as interest and schedules recommend.  You are welcome even if you have not read the book.  Join us for good conversation and refreshments.

On Tuesday, December 6, we will discuss Strangers Drowning by Larissa MacFarquhar. A writer for The New Yorker, MacFarquhar shares the stories individuals who express dramatic altruism, individuals who, according to the author, not only respond to those in need with charity but who seek suffering and purpose to resolve it. In interview with NPR, MacFarquhar explains that the book wrestles with philosophical questions regarding our obligations to those we don’t know. Her discussion of a man who donates a kidney to a stranger, a couple who adopts 22 children, and a man who founds a school in a jungle village weaves in and out of a larger conversation regarding the history of altruism and several of its complications.

Upcoming Book Clubs:

January 10: Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me

February 7: Paolo Bacigalupi, The Water Knife
