This Week in Reading April 29 - May 5

What kind of society is it to be, not just this one, but any one? And how are we all going to get along as we figure that out? Are the answers sometimes absurd, reasonable, or poltically necessary? Those questions were on a few minds of this week's authors and event participants, from social philosophy to personal behavior, but at least there is some foolery, follies, and food, too.

Also occurring this week is an article in Huffington Post about the lessening number of stand alone book review sections in American newspapers. Be thankful you can read reviews here.

This week's question: Who wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas?

Answer to last week's question: Harper Lee grew up to next door neighbor, Truman Capote. She accompanied him in his research and interviews with the killers of In Cold Blood.
