Classics and Contemporary

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

September 8, 10:30

Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov

Join us for a discussion of "Pnin" by Vladimir Nabokov. Pnin is a professor of Russian at an American college and his failure to grasp the subtleties of English causes him to become a running joke among his colleagues. A beautifully crafted portrait that will have readers questioning their assumptions.


No meeting in August.

October 13, 10:30


The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells

Join us for a discussion of "The War of the Worlds" by H.G. Wells.  The night after a shooting star is seen streaking through the sky, terrifying tentacled invaders emerge from a strange cylinder discovered in London.  Soon the whole of human civilization is under threat from powerful Martians destroying all in their path.  The forces of the Earth, however, may prove harder to beat than they thought.  The first modern tale of alien invasion.
