Our evening book group, lead by Access Services Librarian Kevin Goody, usually meets the third Thursday of the month from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Currently, the group meets virtually on the third Thursday of the month from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
NOTE: For the month of August, the group will be meeting one week early, on August 12th.
This month’s book selection is The Sense of an Ending, by Julian Barnes.
A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single setting, The Sense of an Ending has the psychological and emotional depth and sophistication of Henry James at his best, and is a stunning achievement in Julian Barnes’s oeuvre.
This intense novel follows Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, as he contends with a past he never thought much about—until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance: one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony thought he left this all behind as he built a life for himself, and his career has provided him with a secure retirement and an amicable relationship with his ex-wife and daughter, who now has a family of her own. But when he is presented with a mysterious legacy, he is forced to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world.
