Adult Book Discussion

Friday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Regeneration by Pat Barker

Discussion led by Pat Endress


REGENERATION by Pat Barker (1991) In 1917, decorated British officer and poet Siegfried Sassoon wrote a declaration condemning the war. Instead of a court-martial, he was sent to a hospital for other "shell-shocked" officers where he was treated by Dr. William Rivers, a noted anthropologist and psychiatrist. Author Barker turns these true occurrences into a compelling and brilliant antiwar novel. Written in sparse prose that is shockingly clear -- the descriptions of electronic treatments are particularly harrowing -- it combines real-life characters and events with fictional ones, as well as raising issues of class and politics. This is a compactly powerful novel about war, soldiers, and the obliteration of the Victorian ideal. 256 pp.



Everyone is welcomed to enjoy a lively discussion and refreshments! Copies of the books are available at the library. For more information contact the library 860-354-2455 or
