They’re calling it “Keepinitreal,” a new book club at the Evanston Public Library that draws only from non-fiction material.

Library officials say the new club will introduce Evanston residents “to the wonderful world of real life.”

Meeting the last Tuesday night of each month, starting April 24, the club will begin with Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art.
