  5. Friends of the Library Summer Series (3 of 3)

    August 18, 2022, 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

    This Summer's Reading Series theme is humor. E.M. Forster's novel "A Room with a View" , Kingsley Amis’ "Lucky Jim" and P.G. Wodehouse's "Right Ho Jeeves" all consider to what degree humor in fiction reflects culture. We hope that this year’s selection of texts allows for serious discussions of personal and social challenges while providing some laughs along the way. Participants will receive a copy of each book to keep. Donations will be accepted at the event and are appreciated to defray the cost of the books. The events will be held in the Waynesville library auditorium. Space is limited. Register at FOLHaywoodCounty@gmail.com
