Saturday Reading Group
The Saturday Reading Group is for anyone who loves to read, socialize in English, and meet new people.
The October read for the group is Hallucinating Foucault by Patricia Dunker. An intricate and self-reflective novel about that most delicate of relationships–meaning the one between writers and readers. The narrator, an anonymous graduate student, sets off on the trail of a French novelist named Paul Michel, who is currently confined to an asylum. Engineering his hero’s release, the narrator finds himself enmeshed in bizarre love triangle, of which the three vertices are himself, the novelist, and the late Michel Foucault. Sex, it seems, can be made safe, but the oddball intimacy of reading cannot.
Meetings are once a month on Saturday afternoons starting at 3 pm. Open to all library members. To sign up please contact the group coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Location: English-language Library in Angers
