Discuss The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Join us as we discuss this classic OUTDOORS if the weather cooperates, and indoors if it does not! Here's a snipet of a review found on Amazon.com: "First published in 1890 in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine and the following year in novel form, The Picture of Dorian Gray categorically changed Victorian Britain and the landscape of literature. An ostentatious, self-confessed aesthete, known for his wit and intellect, Wilde not only had to endure his prose being labeled "poisonous" and "vulgar," but also suffer its use as evidence in the ensuing trial, resulting in his eventual imprisonment for crimes of "gross indecency."

Brian will be leading our discussion, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all then.

    A lively discussion in a beautiful outdoor location. Thanks to Brian for arranging and leading this meet up. And a warm welcome to two new book club members who joined us last night. Great comments from all participants!

    Always like to listen to comments, and get inspired to read more of the same genre and/or same author.

    Oh and if anyone wants to join me for quizzing after our discussion, the Pickering has half price pizzas and lotsa good beer on tap!

    I'm in Phoenixville now... It's comfortable in the shade. Radar shows storms arriving at 9, so I'm running with meeting at the gazebo. We can easily fall back to the Pickering Inn if warranted! See you all at the gazebo in the park!

    I really would enjoy talking about this book tonight, but I do not want to sit in 92% humidity, 93 degrees outside with possible thunderstorms.. is the place going to be moved indoors? Thank you, PJ Swenda

      Hi PJ! I'm leaving that up to Brian ... but I bet we can work something out! Please come out if you can and we will all move together as a group?

      Hi Cyndi. Glad you joined our group and will look forward to seeing you in KOP for a discussion. We tried two new locations over the last few months and think we will be back in KOP soon.

    Update: I've scoped out Reeves Park and there's a great gazebo that we should be able to use for our discussion. The gazebo is located in the park near the intersection of 3rd Ave and B Street in Phoenixville. I will plan to arrive at 6:30 so look for me there.

    Rain Location will be at The Pickering Creek Inn (37 Bridge St) and they have Quizzo at 8:30 if we want to grab a brew and hang out afterwards, regardless of weather conditions. IF the weather is looking iffy I will post a weather update by 5pm on July 8th, otherwise I look forward to seeing you all at the gazebo!

    Sorry I can't make it. Lots of travel. Will actually be flying to Basel the night before so I'll download to my Kindle and have it for the long plane ride!
