Dear Friends of the Clark,
Please join us next Thursday, November 20th, for the second meeting of the Clark Library Book Club. We’ll be discussing Peter Ackroyd’s prize-winning novel Hawksmoor, which interweaves tales of murder and mayhem in eighteenth-century London with a twentieth-century counterpart involving Detective Nicholas Hawksmoor’s investigation of a bizarre series of deaths in churches designed by Sir Christopher Wren’s apprentice, Nicholas Dyer.
In addition to discussing the novel, we’ll have the opportunity to work with rare books from the Clark’s collection that relate to the story, setting, and characters. Read as much or as little of the book as you’re able. All are welcome.
When: Thursday, November 20th, 4 p.m.
Where: Clark Library, North Book Room
What: Peter Ackroyd, Hawksmoor
The final meeting in our fall fiction series will take place on December 18th. We’ll be discussing Hilary Mantel’s Bring up the Bodies, the sequel to the acclaimed Wolf Hall. To ask a question or suggest a book, contact Rebecca Munson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
