Tuesday Book Club

Tuesday, November 13,  1:00 pm at the Killingworth Library.  Join us as we discuss An Odyssey: A Father, A son, and An Epic by Daniel Mendelson. 

New York Times Book Review:

“The father and son in the title of this many-layered memoir are not only the writer (the critic and classicist Daniel Mendelsohn) and his irascible mathematician dad, Jay, but also Odysseus and Telemachus, the parent-child unit at the heart of Homer’s Odyssey. If that sounds like a dangerously grandiose comparison to set up, it results in a remarkably warm and intimate book, one that brings an ancient wonder into modern life and creates heroes on a less than epic scale, men who keep small secrets, wear brown polyester and worry about slipping in icy weather.”
