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
