homefireBook Club: November 7th

Book Club to discuss Home Fire

For November's Book Club, the host has selected Kamila Shamsie's Home Fire.


Home Fire is a modern retelling of Sophocles' Antigone, with the main characters belonging to a London Pakistani family. 

Sarah Harrison Smith, Amazon Book Review, describes Home Fire as a beautifully-written, angry, romantic novel that succeeds in being both timely and timeless. You might want to read/reread the ancient play as well for comparison, just for fun, certainly not necessary.


The local Harvard Club book club, which has been in existence for ten years, normally meets on the second Wednesday of every month (this month it's the first Tuesday) at 6:30 pm (this month it's at 7:00) for dinner (this month it's appetizers and dessert) and to discuss a wide-ranging selection of books -- fiction, poetry, biography, history, etc. They always enjoy having other interested people attend and participate.

The Book Club will meet  this month at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, November 7th at the home of Barbara Drushell.   

Please email Barbara Drushell for more information.
