Tonight’s salon hosts the paperback launch of Laurie Gwen Shapiro’s hit literary nonfiction book The Stowaway:  A Young Man’s Extraordinary Journey to Antarctica. Publishers Weekly called it a best book of the year, adding: “I read nonfiction almost exclusively… and I’ll be blunt: this has been a depressing year, filled with political works and stories of America’s decline and social disintegration. But Laurie Gwen Shapiro’s fascinating book saved my reading year, offering an incredible story, and a reminder that American Exceptionalism once had real meaning.”
("Stranger and funnier and more amazing than fiction” – Susan Orlean).
