Please join us for the scheduled talk on Philip Roth’s The Human Stain to be held Wednesday, June 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the small meeting room on the 2nd floor. The talk is last in the series on the theme of life and strife in literature, sponsored by the West End Library Friends. The presenter is Ori Z. Soltes, resident scholar in theology and fine arts at Georgetown University. Discussion questions are as follows:
1 How does our theme—life and strife—engage the matter of self as the latter intersects that of family and community?
2 What is the relationship between history and personal memory in the shaping of this story?
3 What is the relationship between fact and truth as this story plays out?
