What You'll Get
Author Mark Kurlansky is known for his nonfiction books on eclectic topics that range from salt, cod and oysters to nonviolence, baseball and the Basque people. In his latest appearance hosted by Commonwealth Club at Palo Alto's Oshman Family JCC, he'll be discussing his just-released tome, Paper: Paging Through History. In this "curious, vital ... and witty" (Booklist) work, Kurlansky explores how the invention and use of paper has had a vital role in developing cultures across the globe, especially in Asia and the Middle East, and what our move towards a printout-free society may mean for the future.
