Crocker Book Club: “How to be Both” by Ali Smith
Named a best book of the year by NPR and the Financial Times, and a finalist for the Man Booker Prize, “How to be Both” is a literary tour de force, entwining two stories into one in surprising and inventive ways. There is George, a teenage girl living in current-day Cambridge; and Francesco del Cossa, a Renaissance fresco painter. Told from two perspectives, “How to be Both” brings to the fore questions of identity and reality, as we come to see how things aren’t always true or false, but can be both. Free for Museum members and $10 for nonmembers. Space is limited and advance registration is strongly suggested.
