February Book Meeting

  • Feb 26, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Barnes and Noble (Augusta Mall)

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

From Wikipedia: "A Farewell to Arms is a novel written by Ernest Hemingway set during the Italian campaign of World War I. The book, published in 1929, is a first-person account of American Frederic Henry, serving as a Lieutenant ("Tenente") in the ambulance corps of the Italian Army. The title is taken from a poem by 16th-century English dramatist George Peele.

A Farewell to Arms focuses on a romance between Henry and a British nurse, Catherine Barkley, against the backdrop of World War I, cynical soldiers, fighting and the displacement of populations. The publication of this, Hemingway's bleakest novel, cemented his stature as a modern American writer, became his first best-seller, and is described by biographer Michael Reynolds as "the premier American war novel from that debacle [World War I]"

      I looked around and didnt recognize anyone, but it was my first meeting. i asked the clerk at the customer service booth, but she didnt know anything about any meetups/bookclubs. I got there early and waited for a while before leaving. I am glad you all were able to have a goos meeting.

      I know that many people are typically a few minutes late, so there may have only been one or two folks there before you left. But I really hope that you will join us in March.

    Thanks to everyone who can not make it tonight that took the time to change their RSVP status thus reducing our waiting list!

    Megan, Something has come up unexpectedly, and I cannot attend tomorrow night. You are welcome to use my reserved space. I will miss you all, and the lively discussion I know will be taking place. See you next time.

    Dang it. I thought I reserved a spot as soon as the e-mail came out, but it's saying I didn't. Is there any way to make the group larger?

      Sorry. I guess I'm just getting frustrated because people admit to not reading the books or take a spot and then post that they didn't show up.

      Your frustration is understandable. We do often get a few no-shows. Ultimately if there are more than 10 people who show up I am not going to turn anyone away. So if you really want to come you are certainly welcome.

    What is the book for Feb? I can't seem to find a list of the upcoming books on the web site, but then computers hate me so I am not surprised.
