This month, a little palate cleanser after the sorrows and horrors of World War II on the eastern front. P.G. Wodehouse was a prolific British humorist, writing at least one novel or collection of short stories nearly every year between 1902 and 1974. The Code of the Woosters is the third novel in Wodehouse’s series about Bertram Wilberforce "Bertie" Wooster, a somewhat foppish and silly British aristocrat, and his dependable and masterful (some might say too masterful) valet, Jeeves.
While it is unlikely that Wodehouse’s work will move your soul or inspire revelatory discussion, it is almost guaranteed to be great fun. Join us for a light-hearted evening of conversation about the adventures of Bertie and Jeeves.
Perhaps after finishing the novel, you’ll consider a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo to visit the newts.
