Book discussion
On Tuesday, March 26, at 11, Janet Krauss will lead a discussion of the book, Tenth of December: Stories by George Saunders. This collection of stories by MacArthur Fellow and Booker Prize-winner George Saunders offers something for everyone and will tantalize and move its readers. There’s the pathos of the title story about an encounter between a misfit boy and a dying cancer patient on a frozen pond in December. Another delivers the intensity of love-inducing pharmaceutical experiments on prisoners by a demented warden. One is in the form of a management memo about a mysterious department whose function is never explicitly revealed. Whimsical, funny and certainly unconventional, Saunders is an impish post-modernist following in the steps of Mark Twain or Kurt Vonnegut.
If you are interested in signing up for this book discussion, please call Stephanie at 203-834-6240. Lunch at noon is optional at $3.
