Program Description


The title for this month is Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy.

Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy (433 pg., 1874). Bathsheba Everdene takes up her position as a farmer on the largest estate in the area. Her spirited presence draws three very different suitors: the gentleman-farmer Boldwood, the soldier-seducer Sergeant Troy, and the devoted shepherd Gabriel Oak. Each unsettles her decisions and complicates her life, and the tragedy that ensues threatens the stability of the community. The A.M. Book Discussion Group is now meeting via Zoom on the fourth Wednesday of the month (except December) at 10:00 am. New readers are always welcome.
