November Book Meeting

For November: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

From Wikipedia: "The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period. It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events. The most notable are Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton. Darnay is a former French aristocrat who falls victim to the indiscriminate wrath of the revolution despite his virtuous nature, and Carton is a dissipated English barrister who endeavours to redeem his ill-spent life out of his unrequited love for Darnay's wife. The 45-chapter novel was published in 31 weekly instalments in Dickens' new literary periodical titled All the Year Round. From April 1859 to November 1859, Dickens also republished the chapters as eight monthly sections in green covers. All but three of Dickens' previous novels had appeared only as monthly instalments. The first weekly instalment of A Tale of Two Cities ran in the first issue of All the Year Round on 30 April 1859. The last ran thirty weeks later, on 26 November."

    So sorry to cancel so late, but unexpected company arrived. Nathan knows to show up anyway, and I just sent Gregory an email letting hm know I won't be there. Have a good discussion.

    Dickens poignantly captures the dangers of group mentality and the suffering of individuals who persevere in the face of adversity.What is humanity and what do we sacrifice in search of truth and morality?

    I'd still like to know what the book is for December - it's not listed under "About us".

      Sorry about the confusion but I don't have meetings in December because of the holidays. The meetings are set up to automatically be on the last Tuesday of every month, so that is why there was a meeting listed to occur in December. I went ahead and cancelled the December meeting.
