Information for our next meetup! Also, I have a question for you, so please read the fine print. :)
What: Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita
When: August 4, 2009 7:00 PM
Price: $2.00 per person
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
From the ever-reliable wikipedia:
Lolita (1955) is a novel by Vladimir Nabokov, first written in English and published in 1955 in Paris, later translated by the author into Russian and published in 1958 in New York. The book is both internationally famous for its innovative style and infamous for its controversial subject: the narrator and protagonist, middle aged Humbert Humbert, becomes obsessed and sexually involved with a 12-year-old girl named Dolores Haze.
There are two film adaptations of Lolita, Stanley Kubrick's 1962 version and Adrian Lyne's 1997 retelling. (You can find information about both films through the wikipedia article for Lolita.) Bearing in mind that the story is a bit explicit at times, would anyone be interested in a second movie meetup after we've discussed the novel? Please reply to this e-mail or comment on the site to let me know.
