Wednesday Morning Book Group

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

We’ll begin with The Reader by Bernhard Schlink. One reviewer wrote that it: “is a brief tale about sex, love, reading, and shame in postwar Germany. What does it mean to love those people--parents, grandparents, even lovers--who committed the worst atrocities the world has ever known? And is any atonement possible through literature?” We will also read and discuss The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro. We will read approximately 60 pages a week over approximately 8 weeks. After the reading and discussion of the final chapters of each book (and with a bit of lunch!), we will then view and discuss the films made of each book. Co-Facilitators: Diane O’Donnell and Gary Stollak
