“Classic” books are classic for a reason – their literary excellence transcends passing fads, and they continue to engage readers generation after generation. If there are classics you have always meant to read “someday,” or if you read them in school before you were ready to appreciate them, now is the time to enjoy them with other adult readers.
Discussion groups will meet at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every other month. Anyone is welcome to attend any session, but advanced registration is required if you would like the library to reserve you a book.
Next Meeting: August 11, 2020
Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thakeray
A novel that chronicles the lives of two women who could not be more different: Becky Sharp, an orphan whose only resources are her vast ambitions, her native wit, and her loose morals; and her schoolmate Amelia Sedley, a typically naive 19th century heroine, the pampered daughter of a wealthy family. Becky Sharp is one of the most fascinating women in English literature. You may not like her, but she will never bore you!

Vanity Fair is in the public domain, and is available as a free eBook from Project Gutenberg
