Summer (at least in the academic sense) begins on May 7. Have you thought about what reading material you will take to the beach? The Library Book Club is here to help, with two great novels, one classic, one modern.
During May, we are reading Jane Austen’s first published novel, Sense and Sensibility, which examines, among other things, whether our actions should be motivated by reason and judgment (sense) or feeling and emotion (sensibility). Dr. Susannah Clements, Chair of the Department of Language & Literature will lead our discussion of Sense and Sensibility on Friday, June 1 at 12:00 in the Library Conference Room.
During June and July, we will read The Help (2009), Kathryn Stockett’s acclaimed and controversial novel about black maids working in white households in Mississippi during the early 1960s. We will discuss The Help in July at a date to be determined.
