Classic Book Club

“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 10, 2021

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Amazon.com: The Importance of Being Earnest A Trivial Comedy for Serious  People (9781530555437): Wilde, Oscar: Books

This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, “that name which inspires absolute confidence”. Wilde’s effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language. (from Audible)
