George Eliot: Middlemarch
Mondays, February 17 – March 24, 2014 6:30 – 8:30 pm
Praised by novelist Virginia Woolf as “one of the few English novels written for grown-up people,” Middlemarch has reigned for more than a century as one of the most powerful and affecting novels in the English language. A serious study of self-delusion and gender-dynamics, George Eliot’s last novel is also a wonderful window into the human soul. This is a book within which to become lost and also found.
