Join us to discuss Masha Gessen’s: The Future is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia. In this National Book Award winner, Russian-American journalist Masha Gessen follows the lives of four people born at what promised to be the dawn of democracy. Each came of age with unprecedented expectations, but Masha Gessen charts their path against the machinations of a regime that crushed them all, alongside the war it waged on understanding itself and the unobstructed reemergence of the old Soviet order. The Future is History is a cautionary tale for our time and for all of time.
Limited copies of each Just the Facts nonfiction book club selection will be available at the second floor information desk at least four weeks in advance of the discussion. There may also be copies in your preferred format online at our Library Catalog.
