Adult Book Discussion

Friday, September 11, 7:30 p.m.

Middlemarch by George Eliot

Discussion led by Barbara Griff


MIDDLEMARCH: A Study of Provincial Life by George Eliot (1872) Belying its dry subtitle, Eliot’s portrait of an English country village in1830 is a truly magnificent Victorian novel. (Virginia Woolf famously called it one of the few English novels written for grownup people.) Eliot's idealistic heroine, trapped in a stifling marriage, struggles with the restraints of gender and convention, at long last breaking free. Other key characters--and there are many--contend with thwarted ambition, toxic spouses, and a social hierarchy as rigid as the caste system. A hefty, satisfying read. 880 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
