Adult Book Discussion Group
The Hartford Library’s adult book discussion group meets on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 pm. We will follow the summer reading program theme of music with our discussions for July and August:
July 9th, Woody Guthrie Night: Our discussion of the life of folk singer Woody Guthrie will focus on Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award nominees This Land Was Made for You and Me by Elizabeth Partridge (2003-2004) and Woody Guthrie Poet of the People by Bonnie Christensen (2002-2003).
August 13th, The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux: Christine Kidd, a native of France, will lead this discussion. *Gaston Leroux was a French journalist and author of detective fiction. In the English-speaking world he is best known for writing the novel The Phantom of the Opera, which has been made into several film and stage productions of the same name, notably the 1925 film starring Lon Chaney, and the Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1986 musical.
