The Global Literatur
Monday, Apr. 19, 7:00 PM
The Global Literature Book Club discusses prize-winning novels from around the world, in translation, selected by members of the club. These works are challenging, but gratifying, and provide insights into a wide variety of nations, cultures, and styles of writing. The club meets monthly on Monday nights at 7 pm (currently via Go To Meeting). We welcome new members.

In April, the Global Literature Book Club will discuss Compass by Mathias Enard. Compass, a dazzling and intricate novel by Mathias Enard, portrays the meandering reflections of a Viennese musicologist as he passes a sleepless night. His journeys to Istanbul, Damascus, and Aleppo, his passion for music and history, as well as his great and unrequited love for a brilliant French scholar, all weave together into a beguiling tapestry that stimulates and rewards those who are up for the challenge.

Call the library at 845-266-5530 to reserve your copy.
