THIS IS A CROSSBAR

Evening Literary Club

Tuesday, October 17 at 6 pm to 7:30 pm (signup deadline was 12 pm, Oct 16)
Home of Kathy Truex 409 11th St. SE, several steps

In October, the Evening and Afternoon Village Literary Clubs will read E.M. Forster’s novel A Passage to India (1924, 361 pp). If you’ve never read Forster’s great novel, this is your opportunity; if you have read it, you probably know that you want to read it again. This is not the Forster of A Room of One’s Own and Howard’s End. This is a book about cultural collision, about imperialism, racism, and insularity, but also, like Forster’s other novels, about friendship and old age. Through deep and complex characters, and a mysterious plot, Forster dramatically illustrates the challenge of East/West understanding. Although A Passage of India, was written in 1924, it feels “eerily relevant." As one critic notes: “Forster was years ahead of his time, and we ought to try to catch up with him."
