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:
Join author Dave Eggers as he discusses topics related to his recent book, The Circle, in conversation with Tobias Wolff. Eggers' other works include A Hologram for the King, The Wild Things, Zeitoun, and What Is the What. Tobias Wolff is the Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods Professor in the Department of English at Stanford University. He is also the author of The Barracks Thief, This Boy's Life, In Pharaoh's Army, Old School, and Our Story Begins.
This event is the Stanford Humanities Center's Martha Sutton Weeks Lecture. It is also sponsored by the Stanford Creative Writing Program and the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society. Books will be sold and signed at the event.
