Book Discussion from the Writer's Perspective

Join us at Quail Ridge Books at 6:30pm on Saturday April 6 for our series discussing novels from a writer’s perspective. This event is free to attend, and newcomers are welcome.

Our featured novel will be Albert Camus's The Stranger. Each month we feature a different novel and we will discuss the novels using the five-point framework of 1) character, 2) plot, 3) setting, 4) style, and 5) theme. Additionally, we will discuss how the novel came to be published, how its publication impacted the author’s career, and how the novel fits within its cultural and historical contexts and how it influenced other writers.

Please plan to have read or at least have some familiarity with The Stranger. This is not a requirement, of course, but it is encouraged.

    It was great! I loved discussing this book which had been part of existentialism in college and I recalled not much! But it was valuable to to see an unlikeable protagonist.

    I love this group. The discussion was great; everyone was so well prepared and so well spoken. I love this new "book discussion from a writer's perspective" type of event!

    Sorry. I cannot come tonight. Could someone tell me how to find out what the future calendar looks like and what books I need to read for future meetings? Thanks. Suzanne

    I'm going to have to be a little early, about 20-30 minutes, due to my ride's prior obligations.
