Monday 3 JUN 2019
8:00pm – Camden House
On Monday June 3, we’ll be discussing two very different books, both of which have connections to the University. One is a classic - CP Snow’s The Masters - and the other a fresh novel - Paul Ryley’s Finding Emily.
The first is about the election of a new master for an imaginary college in 1937: apparently slow moving from the plot point of view but interesting for its examination of character and motive, and the lengths people are willing to go to to achieve their desired ends. Given that human nature changes slowly if at all, its being written 80 odd years ago won’t reduce its relevance. The second is set in yet another imaginary college: this one is on Parker’s Piece. The year is 1976 when, as some will remember, there were eight men to every one woman undergraduate. It is a love story, flavoured by the lyrics of the pop music of the day, and written by one of our members. It is only available on Kindle or Kindle app on tablet, not printed.
So 8pm, Camden House, dessert as usual. Do join us!
