    RSVP    

 


 

MEETINGS:
4th Wednesday of each month  |  6pm - 7pm  |  Colfax

 

DESCRIPTION: 
The TC History Buffs book club explores how human societies have changed over time. We analyze how past societies were structured, how they interacted with their environments, how they dealt with foreign cultures, and we get to know the individuals or groups who changed these trajectories for better or worse. Along this journey we'll delve into academic and popular history books, and we'll read an assortment of newly published, lesser-known, and important works in the historical discipline. I hope you'll join us!
