Afternoon Literary Seminar: A Month In The Country by J. L. Carr

THIS SESSION IS ONLINE
A Month In The Country by J. L. Carr
Kimberly has been trying to get this slim novella into your hands for over a year! After supply issues, Carr is now ours to discuss. The perfect short novel for the waning days of the summer, A Month concerns an English man who spends a month post World War I restoring a painting in a small country church. This prose is just so gorgeous and the story is intriguing—not to say downright strange. It will be so good to pull apart the ingenious elements of this gem. Make the most of the dog days with this delicious escape.
(For those of you who will have read Brideshead Revisited in the summer intensive, the two will provide a super interesting study in contrasts and similarities.)
There are several ticket options that include books with purchase, books shipped to home, books picked up at Kepler’s Books or seminar only. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor all shipping costs will be waived for the literary seminars. The books should be read prior to the meeting date.
