Long before the pandemic of 2020 gripped over 120 countries – our Spring 2019 books selection looked at works that explore what is real, what is imagined, what is knowable.
Is our own experience shared by others, or does it only exist for us?
Are there places where time is “longer” and shorter?
What’s the reality of places that once existed – and now are gone ?
If we cannot “see it” – does anything really exist ?
Can we address the future if the past is destroying it ?
What’s real, what’s not? These books –and their illustrations, maps and photos– help us understand the illusory and real, in our time and all time.
