Community Book Discussion: A Single Man

singlemanbook

Join us at 7 pm, Monday, June 26, for a thoughtful book discussion of A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood.  The book follows a day in the life of George, an English professor, who is unable to cope after the sudden death of his partner, Jim. Throughout the day, he has various encounters with different people that color his senses and illuminate the possibilities of being alive and human in the world.  When first released in 1964, it shocked many with its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in maturity during a time when the LGBTQ population was seldom represented. It now stands as a classic lyric meditation on life as an outsider and was chosen as part of the library’s Pride Month activities.  Copies of the book will be available at the Adult Circulation Desk.  Light refreshments will be served.
