Members Only – Book Club at The Leeds Library via Zoom

by The Leeds Library

Description

Our next Members’ Book Club is on Monday 9 October, 5.30pm: Stoner by John Williams (1965).

William Stoner enters the University of Missouri at nineteen to study agriculture. A seminar on English literature changes his life, and he never returns to work on his father’s farm. Stoner becomes a teacher. He marries the wrong woman. His life is quiet, and after his death, his colleagues remember him rarely.

A beautiful, sad, utterly convincing account of an entire life… I’m amazed a novel this good escaped general attention for so long. Ian McEwan

Copies are available for free download on our eBooks platform.

We’ll Zoom our discussion on Monday 9 November at 5.30pm and if you would like to join that then please email me and I’ll send you a Zoom link nearer the time: gellf@theleedslibrary.org.uk.

Further dates: Monday 14th December, 5.30pm, title tba.
