Update: We're going to try the cafe at the Rubin. It's free to enter - no need to buy museum admission.
We're starting off summer with a classic romance/comedy/travelogue, A Room with a View (1908).
Miss Lucy Honeychurch visits Italy, plays the piano, and has to choose between the free-spirited George and the pretentious Cecil. Which one will win her heart? The answer may (not) surprise you!
Over the next few meetings, the reading choices for this book club are going to progress chronologically, so this month we have an Edwardian book, and next month will be something related to The Great War--reading through the 20th century. That's the plan right now, with possibly one or two breaks for something contemporary or short.
The plan: coffee/breakfast and conversation about the book. This book is available in all the usual bookshop and library places and for free on the internet. There are two films, 1984 and 2008, and while I don't remember the first (sort of, will save that story for the meeting), and have never seen the second, I think they might follow the book enough to help if you run out of reading time.
Hope to see you in June!
