Talking About Books at the Fairfield Public Library

This fall Dr. Mark Schenker will deliver a series of book discussions on four classic novels published between the early 19th century and the early 20th century. The series will be held on Thursdays, Oct. 1, 15, 29 and Nov. 12, at 7 p.m., in the Rotary Room of the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.

The books that will be discussed are Frankenstein (1818), Jane Eyre (1847), The House of Mirth (1905) and To the Lighthouse (1927). These novels by Mary Shelley, Charlotte Brontë, Edith Wharton and Virginia Woolf rank among the best novels of the past 200 years.

Our popular discussion leader, Dr. Mark Schenker is an Associate Dean at Yale College and Dean of Academic Affairs and a part-time lecturer in the English Department. He has led book discussions in Connecticut libraries for over 16 years and has given numerous lectures on writers and their works.
