Fall-Winter Book Discussion Series: Home Sweet Home
Is home a familiar space or a foreign place? Can it be both at once? In this series, we will consider the notion of “home” as a nebulous place of nostalgia, security and betrayal by reading and talking about books related to the theme.
Each session in this series will begin with a lecture about the book, its author, and its historical context. A facilitated group discussion will follow. This program is sponsored by The Friends of the Chevy Chase, DC Library.
