Let's meet and discuss The Remains of the Day, by Kazuo Ishiguro 4.08 rating on Goodreads
258 pages

In 1956, Stevens, a long-serving butler at Darlington Hall, decides to take a motoring trip through the West Country. The six-day excursion becomes a journey into the past of Stevens and England, a past that takes in fascism, two world wars and an unrealised love between the butler and his housekeeper. Ishiguro’s dazzling novel is a sad and humorous love story, a meditation on the condition of modern man, and an elegy for England at a time of acute change

    Were we going to try Santa Clara library for this one or are we going to stick to Le Boulanger?

      No, we will stick with Le Boulanger for now. The Santa Clara library only has small rooms (5-10 people) avail for free. The larger rooms have a fee and you have to make the mtg. open to the public.
