THIS IS A CROSSBAR

Afternoon Literary Club

Wednesday, October 25 at 1:00 to 2:30
At the home of Maggie Hobbs, 722 A St. SE, several steps

In October, both 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."
