Lunchtime Literature – Main Library Book Club

This discussion group for men and women will share insights into a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books. Adults and teens welcome to participate.

Additional information: For those attending the book club a two-hour free parking validation is available for the garage directly below the library. All are invited to bring their lunches for this free program.

We will discuss this month's reading selection, The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins.

The Woman in White (1859-60) is the first and greatest "Sensation Novel." Walter Hartright's mysterious midnight encounter with the woman in white draws him into a vortex of crime, poison, kidnapping, and international intrigue. This new critical edition is the first to use the original manuscript of the novel. John Sutherland examines Collins's contribution to Victorian fiction, traces his practices as a creator of plot, and provides a chronology of the novel's complicated events.

You can pick up a copy of this month's book at the first floor information desk of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, starting 1:00pm October 16th
