Please note: Book Club has been moved to the Historic Theater to allow for more social distancing.
A benefit for Music Hall members at our Contributor-level and above, Book Club meets on the second Monday of the month from 6-7:30pm. Evenings include time for socializing followed by a moderated discussion. This month’s title is Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell.
About the Book:
In 1580’s England, during the Black Plague, a young Latin tutor falls in love with an extraordinary, eccentric young woman in this “exceptional historical novel” (The New Yorker) and best-selling winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction.
A luminous portrait of a marriage, a shattering evocation of a family ravaged by grief and loss, and a tender and unforgettable re-imagining of a boy whose life has been all but forgotten, and whose name was given to one of the most celebrated plays of all time, Hamnet is mesmerizing, seductive, impossible to put down—a magnificent leap forward from one of our most gifted novelists.
