The Stacks Book Club — January 2021

We made it to another year, and another year of The Stacks Book Club! We’re kicking off 2021 with a fantastic short story collection, The Office of Historical Corrections by Danielle Evans.

The Office of Historical Corrections is about the ways history, both personal and collective, can haunt, harm, and heal us. The stories range from a near future reality obsessed with correcting the public record to a college student embroiled in a campus wide scandal. These stories are connected in their ties to grief, inheritance, and truth, and in Evans’ skill at crafting characters and stories that leave you wanting more.

We will be discussing The Office of Historical Corrections on the podcast on Wednesday, January 27th. You can find out who our guest will be by listening to the podcast on January 6th. If you’d like even more discussion around the book consider joining The Stacks Pack on Patreon and participating in The Stacks’ monthly virtual book club.
