Fall-Winter Book Discussion Series: Home Sweet Home

Last date: Wednesday, March 6, 2013, 7 p.m. (see all dates)

newlyweds coverBeowulfTwelfth Knight

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.
