March is a great month, isn’t it?  It’s the month of the Cleveland International Film Festival, the new Tim Burton film of Alice in Wonderland, my birthday, Mid-America Theatre Conference, the hope for warmer weather, finishing your thesis, St. Patrick’s Day mayhem, a new restaurant on Larchmere, and other great reasons to celebrate.  Enjoy!

T490: Tombstone

Published before 1980.  Two children find a tombstone and think its a person.   Later find out its a racehorse.  Setting near the ocean...find out what mussels and cockles are.  Something about a mirror and a ribbon hidden behind it.  Wish I had more to go on.

Praise the Unsung Book Club

fict-earley.jpgTony Earley:  Jim the Boy
Thursday, March 25, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
From its title to its closing sentence, Tony Earley's first novel returns to basics, back to modernness in the old sense of the word. It's not a big book, just a good one -- and in this instance ''good'' is higher praise than ''great.'' At a time when the latest, most souped-up version of something, a car or a computer program, say, is by reflex regarded as the best, Earley has had the courage to return to artistic first principles: clarity, balance, ease. Set in Depression-era North Carolina, his year-in-the-life story of a rural boyhood unmarked by parental abuse, erotic turmoil or domestic dysfunction seems strangely brave and new. Jim the Boy is a novel that does one thing memorably instead of many things forgettably.    [-New York Times Book Review]


Austeniana Book Club
PersuasionJane Austen:  Northanger Abbey
Thursday, March 25, 7pm

~ fourth Thursdays ~
We wrap up our second round of reading Jane Austen with Northanger AbbeyNorthanger Abbey was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for publication, although it did not actually get published until after Jane's death, some 20 years later.  Come discuss Austen's most overt criticism of the popular Gothic novel trend, while enjoying her own sharp satire of Victorian society.  In April, we'll delve off into newer fields with Jane Austen in Scarsdale or Love, Death, and the SATs by Paula Marantz Cohen (2006).
