Krista Bremer, Lesley Hazleton

Wed, April 16 at 7:30 pm.

Krista Bremer, Lesley Hazleton My Accidental Jihad is about how Bremer fell in love with, married, and had a child with a Muslim man.

Mon, April 21 at 7:30 pm.

Barbara Ehrenreich Ehrenreich has her critics—I thought her Nickel and Dimed was fairly condescending to working-class people—but even those critics must admit that she’s a gifted essayist and a relentless, curious thinker. Her new book Living With a Wild God: A Nonbeliever’s Search for the Truth About Everything is partially a memoir about finding an areligious belief system. But it’s also about our relationship to science, and why we cling, white-knuckled, to things that we consider to be “truth.” It’s a journey... more » $5.
