Do you enjoy reading and discussing Classic Literature? If so, join us on the first Tuesday of each month for the Sutherland Classics Open Book Group.

There is no commitment required; just turn up ready to share your thoughts. Each month a book from classic literature is selected by the group to be read for the following meeting.

Next meeting's book: Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope

This 1857 sequel to The Warden wryly chronicles the struggle for control of the English diocese of Barchester. It opens with the Bishop of Barchester lying on his death bed; soon a battle begins over who will take over power, with key players including the rather incompetent Dr Proudie, his fiendishly unpleasant wife and his slippery curate, Slope. This is a wonderfully rich novel, in which men and women are too shy to tell each other of their love; misunderstandings abound; and Church of England officials are only too willing to undermine each other in the battle for power. One of Trollope's best-loved novels, it is a dazzlingly real portrayal of nineteenth century provincial England peppered with humour, wisdom and extraordinary characters.

The Fine Print

It is your responsibility to source a copy of the selected book.

If you do not wish to purchase a copy the library will have some copies for loan, however these are openly available to all library members (you may be able to reserve a copy).  Alternatively, we may be able to source a copy from another library service via our Interlibrary Loans service.  Standard charges apply for reserves and interlibrary loans.
