Please does anyone have any non-fiction to recommend for lively book club discussions?

also fiction -we are trying to alternate.

we have a good mix of men and women so needs to be interesting for both.

Hi Ronda,

I,too, am in a book club (or three). Here are a few that we really enjoyed:

Little Bee- Chris Cleave (fiction)

Still Alice -Lisa Genova (fiction)

When a Crocodile Eats the Sun- Peter Godwin (Memoir)

The Book Thief -Markus Zusak (fiction)

The Known World- Edward Jones (ficition)

Happy Reading! I am also interested in what you all have read. I am wracking my brain right now for suggestions when we all get together next month.

Have you thought about Unbroken by Laura Hillabrand. Not sure about the spelling of the last name.
