What makes a masterpiece a masterpiece? Why do certain books continue to be read through the years? The Friends Big Book Club is dedicated to answering these questions. The group meets several times a year to do a deep analysis of a great book. This Fall’s selection is William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury. Discussions will begin on October 23 at Historic Takoma (7328 Carroll Ave.), with a reception and lecture by GWU Professor Evelyn Schreiber. Club members will meet at the Takoma Park Community Center for further discussions on Wednesdays November 6, November 20 and December 4. All discussions will begin at 7:30 p.m. Copies of Faulkner’s landmark American novel in a Norton Critical Edition are now available at the Library. All are welcome to attend the Friends book discussions.
