Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner
Crossing to Safety has, since its publication in 1987, established itself as one of the greatest and most cherished American novels of the twentieth century. Tracing the lives, loves, and aspirations of two couples who move between Vermont and Wisconsin, it is a work of quiet majesty, deep compassion, and powerful insight into the alchemy of friendship and marriage. The discussion will be led by Norma Mandel, Ph.D.
Friday: September 5 at 10 a.m.
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Middlemarch is a complex tale of idealism, disillusion, profligacy, loyalty and frustrated love. This penetrating analysis of the life of an English provincial town during the time of social unrest prior to the Reform Bill of 1832 is told through the lives of Dorothea Brooke and Dr Tertius Lydgate and includes a host of other paradigm characters who illuminate the condition of English life in the mid-nineteenth century. The discussion will be led by Neal Kreitzer, Ph.D.
Friday: October 10 at 10 a.m.
Friday: November 7 at 10 a.m: TITLE TO BE ANNOUNCED
