Williamstown Readers Group New Books Are IN!

The discussion title is ‘Nothing To Envy’ by Barbara Demick.  This non-fiction book follows the lives of six North Koreans as they go through the famines of 1990’s and the change in power to the current leader of the country Kim Jun-Un.  This gives an inside look in the most cut-off country in the world today that is very much in the news.
