Short Classic Series: The Stranger

The results are in and we will read "The Stranger", by Albert Camus, to kick off our short classic series in April. If readers are interested, we can also read "The Bell Jar," or "The Awakening," in May or June. Let's talk about short classic ideas at the next Meetup. If you come to a Meetup, we ask that you donate $1 or $2 to contribute to the website administrative fees.

Hope to see you there! Here's the book description:

Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd." First published in English in 1946; now in a new translation by Matthew Ward.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
