Senior Center Book Discussion: Great Expectations

Tuesday, October 25, 2016 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Dickens' masterpiece Great Expectations is one of his most accessible (and short!) novels and has been read and re-read with great pleasure by millions of people since its publication in 1861. The quintessential Victorian novel, it tells the coming-of-age story of the rural orphan Pip as he makes his way up through the ranks of London society. Along the way, we meet some of the most memorable characters in English literature such as Joe the blacksmith, Mr. Pumblechook, Abel Magwitch the convict, Estella, and of course Miss Havisham. In an 1861 review The Atlantic said: "The very title of this book indicates the confidence of conscious genius" and that "the most famous novelist of the day, watched by jealous rivals and critics, could hardly have selected it, had he not inwardly felt the capacity to meet all the expectations he raised."

Senior Center Book Discussion: The Death of Ivan Ilyich

Tuesday, November 22, 2016 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Usually classified as one of the finest examples of the novella form, Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Ilyich is a brief work that is both profound and provocative. Written in 1886 following Tolstoy's crisis of faith and religious conversion, the book is an examination of nothing less than the meaning of life and of death. Ivan Ilyich is a senior magistrate living an apparently good life until the inevitability of his approaching death confronts him and causes him to consider two major dichotomies: the artificial vs the authentic life; and, the outer, physical life vs the inner, spiritual life. These considerations lead him to a sort of awakening which allows him to move past his suffering, in effect conquering death, and thence to experience pure joy. In his lectures on Russian literature, Nabokov said of the book: "this is really the story not of Ivan's Death but the story of Ivan's Life…Life with a capital L."

Senior Center Book Discussion: Empire

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Gore Vidal's Empire is the fifth historical novel in his "Narratives of Empire" series encompassing the conclusion of the Spanish-American War in 1898, President William McKinley's assassination in 1901, and up through the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt. During this period, Congress was debating whether or not the United States should remain a republic or become an empire by virtue of the lands it had gained from winning the war against Spain. The Gilded Age provides the background for a story that combines fictional characters, including a brother and sister team growing a newspaper empire, with many of the most notable historical figures of the day. "And like the earlier novels in his historical cycle, Empire is a vivid documentary drama" (New York Times).

Senior Center Book Discussion: Alexander Hamilton

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Alexander Hamilton by award-winning historian Ron Chernow fills a major gap in our understanding of the founding of the United States and of the founders themselves. Hamilton had as much, and perhaps more, of an impact on the early history of the United States than some if his better-known founding brethren. And he had an amazing life: an illegitimate birth in the Caribbean and an orphaned childhood; his role as George Washington's chief of staff and the new nation's first Treasury Secretary; his untimely death in a duel with Aaron Burr. David McCullough wrote: "Alexander Hamilton was one of the most brilliant men of his brilliant time, and one of the most fascinating figures in all of American history…His importance to the founding of the new nation, and thus to the whole course of American history, can hardly be overstated…This is grand-scale biography at its best." A smash hit based on the book opened on Broadway in 2015.

Senior Center Book Discussion: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

The chance sighting of a Japanese parasol at the demolition of a hotel on the edge of Seattle's Japantown brings the memories of a turbulent time in American history flooding back to Henry Lee. With the World War Two internment of Japanese-Americans as the backdrop, Jamie Ford's best-selling and award-winning debut novel Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, published in 2009, explores the forbidden friendship and love between Henry, a Chinese-American and Keiko, a Japanese-American at a time when Old World prejudices prevailed. "In Henry and Keiko, Jamie Ford has created an unforgettable duo whose story teaches us the power of forgiveness and the human heart" (Random House).

Senior Center Book Discussion: Mary Barton

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Elizabeth Gaskell's first novel Mary Barton tells a story of the plight of the lower classes in Victorian-Era England. Set in Manchester in the mid-1800s, the plot revolves around a young woman, her two potential love-interests (one each from the lower- and upper-classes), and her immediate family, most especially her father, and her estranged aunt; it's a story of class conflict, romance, murder, and redemption. The meticulously researched novel truly puts the reader amidst the daily sights and sounds of a Victorian-Era industrial city. The Manchester Guardian reviewed the book in 1849 writing: "As a whole, the tale is beautifully written; the characters introduced are graphically delineated; the events are so interestingly interwoven, and the groundwork is so artistically constructed, that whoever reads the two first chapters is sure to read the whole story."

Senior Center Book Discussion: The Yankee Division in the First World War: In the Highest Tradition

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

The Yankee Division was a core component of the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) sent to France to fight in World War One. Composed of units from all of the New England states, its nickname was selected to highlight this geographic connection. Thought by many to have been unfairly criticized in the various histories of the war, the Division's reputation got a significant upgrade due to the research of Wiltonian Michael Shay who has written a number of books related to World War One. Beyond standard military records from the National Archives, Shay's sources also included numerous personal records such as letters and diaries of the Division's soldiers.  Military historian and World War One expert Dr. Mark Grotelueschen said: "Michael Shay has mined an impressive collection of personal accounts to tell the story of the AEF's most controversial division."
