Contemporary Evening Book Discussion: The Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing ***Cancelled***

March 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Book cover of The Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing

Due to the recommendation from public health officials to avoid crowds and to help contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the North Shore Public Library will be cancelling all programs for the rest of March. Any fee paid for a program will be refunded and all fines will be waived during this time. We will be monitoring the situation and will make adjustments if necessary. Please continue to check our website or call the Library (631-929-4488) for any updates on Library hours and program scheduling.

 

The Grass is Singing, by Nobel Prize winner Lessing, centers around the murder of a farmer’s wife in 1940’s Rhodesia. Written as an extended flashback, it details racial politics and the mental and financial disintegrations of farmers struggling to make a living off the land, while also exploring the simmering nature of revenge.

Moderated by Professor Mike Boecherer of SCCC

Copies of the books are available at the Reference desk. Everyone is welcome!
