Join us for a discussion of "Wide Sargasso Sea" by Jean Rhys.

Novel Conversations is a book group that alternates between classic novels and more recent works of fiction and nonfiction. Participants are welcome to come to all the meetings or just those that sound interesting.  Multiple copies of each book are available for checkout in the library and are, whenever possible, made available in large print, audiobook, and ebook editions.

Novel Conversations meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm on Zoom.  Email for the Zoom link.

Wide Sargasso Sea (book cover) In August we are discussing:
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys

Dominican-British author Rhys wrote her postcolonial prequel to Jane Eyre in 1966, using as her main character Antoinette, otherwise known as the “madwoman in the attic.” Wide Sargasso Sea examines relationships, race, assimilation, and Caribbean history.
