Program Description


The title for this month is The Emigrants by W. G. Sebald.

Four narratives weave history and fiction together as refugees from the holocaust remember their experiences.  “The  pervasive melancholy in these lives that are locked in tragedy is formidable, but at the  same time the  lyricism and immediacy of the  narratives are marvelous to behold, a profound and moving work that should leave no reader unaffected.” Kirkus 

Critics' Circle meets in-person on the third Tuesday of the month (except December) at 6:30 pm for a discussion of new and classic titles. New readers are always welcome. This book discussion is led by Margaret Eustace.

Many of the book discussion titles can be downloaded via the Library's Hoopla or Overdrive services. Check for video instructions on using Hoopla. Print copies are available at the library for most book groups. Call 203-438-2282 about reserving books. Copies can also be purchased at Books on the Common at a 15% discount.
