NHM Virtual Book Club- Let Me Explain You by Annie Liontas
August 20, 2020
Join us for NHM’s second meeting of our Virtual Book Club facilitated by our Resident Scholar Dr. Katherine Kelaidis. Each month the NHM Book Club will choose a book that is either inspired by the Hellenic legacy or by a Greek American author (and sometimes both!). Then we will gather to discuss the book on Zoom!
Our August book selection is Let Me Explain You: A Novel by Annie Liontas. It is a hilarious and poignant portrayal of a Greek American family grappling with the disappearance of its patriarch. Told from multiple perspectives in a way reminiscent of the ancient Greek chorus, Let Me Explain You explores the complex world of family, heritage, and self, asking us to consider the ties that bind the ways they both protect and endanger us. This is a story deeply rooted in the Greek American experience that will be instantly recognizable to anyone whose family inspires both love and annoyance.
Book club will be held on the third Thursday of each month at 7pm CDT.
Next book selection: Circe by Madeline Miller
