Real People/Real Stories: A Nonfiction Book Group
August 19, 2021 @ 2:00 pm
This month we’re discussing Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves by James Nestor. Take a deep breath and plunge into pitch-black water with this New York Times bestselling author. Nestor trains with athletes who challenge themselves to reach extreme depths on a single lungful of air and drops to the ocean’s midnight zone in a DIY submarine. In this alien world, whales communicate over hundreds of miles, sharks navigate without light, and researchers investigate whether humans can unlock new senses of direction.
Real People/Real Stories explores the best in nonfiction history, biography, science, nature, and the arts.
Please note that this is an in-person event at the Stryker Center, but you can also join us via Zoom.
