The Alice Sesquicentennial opens tonight, and the exhibit will be up until the end of the month.  Curious, and curiouser it is, even impressive, and I hope you get a chance to see it.  Bonus points if you come on Saturday and help us read the text.  What could be better than reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland aloud with other aficionados on a hot summer’s day?

E.M. Forster: A Room With A View
Wednesday, August 26, 2015, 7:00PM
~ fourth Wednesdays ~
E. M. Forster displays an unusually perceptive view of British society in the early 20th century. Written in 1908, A Room with a View is a social comedy set in Florence, Italy, and Surrey, England. Its heroine, Lucy Honeychurch, struggling against straitlaced Victorian attitudes of arrogance, narrow-mindedness and snobbery, falls in love-while on holiday in Italy-with the socially unsuitable George Emerson. Caught up in a claustrophobic world of pretentiousness and rigidity, Lucy ultimately rejects her fiancÚ, Cecil Vyse, and chooses, instead, to wed her true love, the young man whose sense of freedom and lack of artificiality became apparent to her in the Italian pensione where they first met. This classic is an exploration of passion, human nature and social convention. Loganberry's own book discussion group, led by Susan Petrone.
