We invite you to join Stanford's "Another Look" book club (of which the Stanford Libraries are a proud sponsor) in a few weeks to discuss Italo Calvino's mind-expanding collection of science-inspired fantasies, Cosmicomics.

The discussion—free and open to the public—begins at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, October 27, 2014, in the Stanford Humanities Center. Acclaimed author Robert Pogue Harrison, the Rosina Pierotti Professor of Italian Literature, will moderate the panel, with award-winning novelist Tobias Wolff, the Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods Professor, and literary journalist and visiting scholar Cynthia Haven, who blogs at The Book Haven

The "Another Look" club has a richly-outfitted website at anotherlook.stanford.edu.  Here's a summary of recent posts related to Cosmicomics:
