Classics and Contemporary

Meet in the Small Meeting Room, second Tuesday of the month, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. Refreshments served.

Join us on September 9 to discuss The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri.  The young Mitra brothers are inseparable even though Subhash is serious and cautious while Udayan is a passionate risk-taker.  After growing up in a quiet Calcutta enclave they take very different paths as adults with cataclysmic consequences.  Lahiri's writing is as lyrical and haunting as ever.  Lowland
On October 14, we will discuss John Steinbeck's classic, Of Mice and Men.  Two itinerant farm workers in the 1930s have a strange friendship.  George assumes responsibility for Lenny, a childlike giant who inadvertently kills what he tries to caress.  Their dream of finding a home where they can escape from society's ill treatment is ever elusive.  OfMiceAndMen
