Memorable American Fiction Book Discussion

Joseph O’Toole will use novels set in different time periods and regions in the United States to discuss why certain books are memorable with readers by examining the merits (and shortfalls) of each novel. Each of the books highlights a central character. They are unified by the theme of how these characters cope with difficulties. Since each session will build upon the previous session, participants should attend every month. Copies of all books will be provided. This reading and discussion series is made possible through Humanities New York. Registration required.
