General Book Club
Monday January 13 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The General Book Club will meet on to discuss the novel The Noise of Time by Julian Barnes. This fictionalized biography tells the story of Dmitri Shostakovich, considered to be the greatest soviet Russian composer. In 1936, 30 year-old Shostakovich fears for his livelihood and his life when Stalin denounces his latest opera. A stroke of luck prevents him from being sent to Siberia. Instead he will be held under the thumb of despotism and be compelled to balance appeasing those in power against the integrity of his music.
The General Book Club will meet in the Bilder Family Meeting Room and everyone is welcome.
Copies of the book will be available at the library following the December 9 General Book Club discussion. For more information contact Teresa at (815) 756-9568 ext. 2114 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
