Reading Circle

Reading Circle's October Selection

The lodge's Reading Circle will meet at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, October 22, to discuss Autumn by Karl Ove Knausgaard. Knausgaard became internationally acclaimed for My Struggle, his six autobiographical novels. Autumn is the first in his autobiographical quadrilogy based on the seasons. It is a letter he writes to his unborn daughter, describing in great detail the world she will soon enter..

If you plan to attend, please RSVP Christine Meloni at reading@norwaydc.org. We usually meet at Norway House but we occasionally meet in members' homes. Although rare, the date is sometimes changed due to weather or other compelling circumstances.
