The next meeting of the evening book club will be on Thursday, November 16, at 7:00 pm. We will be discussing A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. All are welcome.
Sentenced to house arrest in Moscow’s Metropol Hotel by a Bolshevik tribunal for writing a poem deemed to encourage revolt, Count Alexander Rostov nonetheless lives the fullest of lives, discovering the depths of his humanity… A masterly encapsulation of modern Russian history, this book more than fulfills the promise of Towles’ stylish debut, Rules of Civility. —Kirkus Reviews
