Bill GourgeyOn Dec. 12 at 7 p.m., the Chevy Chase Library welcomes local sci-fi author Bill Gourgey, who will discuss Nu Logic, the second book in his acclaimed Glide Trilogy.

Published on Friday, November 15, 2013

The Chevy Chase Neighborhood Library will continue its popular book discussion series this November, the theme of which will be “Classics Revisited.”  Italo Calvino once wrote that a classic “is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.”  Therefore, whether you are reading the books on this list for the first time or rereading them we should all come away from the experience having discovered something new.   
We will be looking at these classics through the lens of authors and scholars who have an intense and passionate interest in a particular classic work.   In addition to reading classic texts, we will be reading works that argue for the work’s importance and its continued resonance in modern life.  We will also be hearing from local experts who have personal connections to the work we will be examining.
