Culture Corner: A Streetcar Named Desire and the Dutch Golden Age

Culture Corner

This week we're launching a new feature on the BookBrowse Blog. The idea behind "Culture Corner" is that during the time of COVID-19 (with the accompanying restrictions of movement and social distancing, and with most libraries, museums and theaters closed) cultural activities have been restricted for all of us. So, how do we cross this cultural abyss?

Books provide a wonderful escape, and an opportunity to learn and grow - and we have plenty of recommendations at BookBrowse! But there are other ways to keep our cultural horizons expanding during this difficult time. So for at least the next couple of months we will provide you with three to five weekly suggestions beyond the immediate world of books. Without more ado, here are this week's ideas:

Also, check out our ""beyond the book" articles that explore a historical, cultural or contextual aspect of every book we feature.

Great idea! A nice break from reading and soooo much better than the TV. Thanks for the nice diversion!
