For all lovers of literature who love to nestle with a good book and a cup of tea or a glass of beer -- let's get together to talk about and pore over great books! I would be particularly interested in discussing books that have made a historical, social, or literary impact, perhaps revisit classics. The definition of a "classic" can mean something different for different readers, so we can decide as a group on the books that would be fit for our discussion. The only rule of our book club is to read the book by the meetup date and be ready to discuss. Come with your ideas, your sense of adventure, and your love of reading!
Join us for a casual yet contemplative discussion of Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend:
A modern masterpiece from one of Italy's most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense and generous hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Ferrante's inimitable style lends itself perfectly to a meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighbourhood, a city and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between her two protagonists.
