Temple Book Club Reads Edwidge Danticat’s “Create Dangerously” as Part of One Book, One Philadelphia Initiative

This spring the book club will explore the city, addressing immigration and city life through a discussion of Edwidge Danticat’s Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work and Witold Rybczynski’s City Life. Join us for discussion and refreshments this spring at Paley. Create Dangerously is MacArthur Genius Grant winner Edwidge Danticat’s collection of essays takes its name from Albert Camus’s last published lecture in which he stated, “To create today is to create dangerously.” The book illustrates the struggle of making art in exile—and what it’s like to exist in a country constantly in conflict, where even the act of reading means taking a stand against oppression. This book is the official One Book, One Philadelphia selection in this, the program’s 10th year.
