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: Excellent Women by Barbara Pym

Excellent Women is one of Barbara Pym's richest and most amusing high comedies. Mildred Lathbury is a clergyman's daughter and a mild-mannered spinster in 1950s England. She is one of those "excellent women," the smart, supportive, repressed women who men take for granted. As Mildred gets embroiled in the lives of her new neighbors-anthropologist Helena Napier and her handsome, dashing husband, Rocky, and Julian Malory, the vicar next door-the novel presents a series of snapshots of human life as actually, and pluckily, lived in a vanishing world of manners and repressed desires.

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.
