Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen

Date and Time: May 21, 2020, 2:00 PM CT

Location: Manhattan Public Library, 629 Poyntz Ave, Manhattan
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, Living with the Land
Discussion Leader: Nicolas Shump

Set at the end of colonial Africa, Dinesen's memoir idealized the African land and those living in harmony with it, as compared with what she saw as the failings of the industrialized West. The beauty of Africa and its animals, along with the relatively undisturbed life of its people, are all lovingly described.
