The women’s retreat book group will read the book On Tyranny, the graphics edition, by Yale history professor Timothy Snyder. We’ll meet for three weeks starting November 27 at 6 pm on Zoom, take a break for Christmas, and start again January 8 for two more weeks. Here is more about the book from the Amazon description:
A graphic designer edition of historian Timothy Snyder’s best-selling book of lessons for surviving and resisting America’s arc towards authoritarianism, featuring the visual storytelling talents of renowned illustrator Nora Krug.
In this graphic addition Nora Krug draws from her highly inventive art style in Belonging – at once a graphic memoir, college-style scrapbook, historical narrative, and trove of memories – to breathe new life, color, and power into Schneider’s riveting historical reference, turning a quick read pocket guide of lessons into a visually striking rumination. In a time of great uncertainty and instability, this addition of “On Tyranny” emphasizes the importance of being active, conscious, and deliberate participants in resistance.
