Steve Almond, at Book Passage, SF

Book Passage

The problem wasn't just the election, but the fact that nobody could explain, in any sort of coherent way, why America had elected a cruel, corrupt, and incompetent man to the Presidency. Bad Stories: What the Hell Just Happened to Our Country is Steve Almond's effort to make sense of our historical moment, to connect certain dots that go unconnected amid the deluge of hot takes and think pieces.


This is what SF/Arts curator Betsy Crabtree had to say about Steve Almond, at Book Passage, SF :

Still trying to puzzle out the 2016 election? Steve Almond may be able to help you out. He visits Book Passage/San Francisco to discuss his book, “Bad Stories: What the Hell Just Happened to Our Country,” which seeks answers in less immediate places, as he studies Melville, Orwell, Bradbury, Baldwin and others to “help explain the roots of our moral erosion as a people.” Free.
