Event Details

Welcome back! This month we are reading and discussing Kazuo Ishiguro’s Klara and the Sun. Read what others are saying about it:

“A delicate, haunting story, steeped in sorrow and hope.”
Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“What stays with you in ‘Klara and the Sun’ is the haunting narrative voice—a genuinely innocent, egoless perspective on the strange behavior of humans obsessed and wounded by power, status and fear.” —Booker Prize committee

“As with Ishiguro’s other works, the rich inner reflections of his protagonists offer big takeaways, and Klara’s quiet but astute observations of human nature land with profound gravity . . . This dazzling genre-bending work is a delight.”
Publishers Weekly [starred review]

“A haunting fable of a lonely, moribund world that is entirely too plausible.”
Kirkus Reviews [starred review]

“The novel is a masterpiece of great beauty, meticulous control and, as ever, clear, simple prose.”
—Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times

“A deft dystopian fable about the innocence of a robot that asks big questions about existence”
The Financial Times

For the convenience of all, this title will be discussed at both the morning and evening book club. Please join us for some fun, socialization and just all-around good time!
