Join us for a reading group discussion of "This is Running for Your Life" by Michelle Orange!

In "This Is Running for Your Life," Michelle Orange takes us from Beirut to Hawaii to her grandmother's retirement home in Canada in her quest to understand how people behave in a world increasingly mediated—for better and for worse—by images and interactivity. Orange's essays range from the critical to the journalistic to the deeply personal; she seamlessly combines stories from her own life with incisive analysis as she explores everything from the intimacies we develop with celebrities and movie characters to the troubled creation of the most recent edition of the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders."
