LMBC Big Books Edition: Middlemarch meeting 1 of 3
Duke University Library’s Low Maintenance Book Club (Big Books Edition) goes provincial this summer with George Eliot’s Middlemarch, discussed over three monthly meetings.The first will take place on Zoom, Tuesday, June 15, noon-1pm EST and cover the prelude through book three. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out the morning of the 15th.
Frequently named as one of the greatest British novels, Eliot’s work explores issues of class and gender through the residents of the fictional town of Middlemarch. Does it live up to its reputation? Is it still relevant in the present age? Let’s discuss!
Although the readings are longer, the low maintenance attitude is the same. Join as you like, discuss as much as you want--or just hang out and enjoy the company. Everyone is welcome. Just RSVP so we know how many to expect, and we’ll send out a Zoom link the morning of the meeting.
