The Best Book I Never Read

December 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

judeWe’ve all done it. Our high school English teacher or a college lit professor assigned a novel that we had every good intention of reading, but time slipped away. So, the night before the exam, we scanned the Cliff Notes or watched the film adaptation. We didn’t do so well on the exam.

Here’s a chance to read those books without having to worry about your grade point average! Enjoy some of the fine crafted beers of Starboard Brewing Company and Door County Brewing Company and meet others who, like you, missed reading the book the first time around. Love the book? Hate the book? Don’t understand the book? Come out and tell us about it!

This month’s selection is Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy. In 1895 Hardy’s final novel, sent shockwaves of indignation rolling across Victorian England. Hardy had dared to write frankly about sexuality and to indict the institutions of marriage, education, and religion. But he had, in fact, created a deeply moral work. The most powerful expression of Hardy’s philosophy, and a profound exploration of man’s essential loneliness, Jude The Obscure is a great and beautiful book.

This program is presented in collaboration with NexGen.
