Another Look was born in 2012, when award-winning author Tobias Wolff, who then headed Stanford’s Creative Writing Program, along with Stanford literary journalist Cynthia Haven, decided that Stanford needed a book club that would be a magnet for book-lovers at Stanford, the Bay Area, and beyond. It would focus on short works that could be read in a few sittings – perfect for Silicon Valley professionals who don’t have the time or stamina for The Gulag Archipelago or Clarissa. It would feature “insider’s tips” on overlooked classics, forgotten masterpieces, or simply books that hadn’t gotten the attention they merit, rather than the popular, broad audience books that monopolize the tables of the chain bookstores – hence the name they settled on, the “Another Look Book Club.”
