From the Library – Classic Book Discussion Group Will Read E.M. Forster’s “A Room With A View” in July 2022

E.M. Forster’s A Room With A View was originally published in 1908, and it’s appeared on many lists of the Best English-Language Novels in the decades since.

Maybe you’ve never read it before, or maybe you’d like to read it again. But either way, now is a great time to pick it up! That’s because the library’s Classic Book Discussion Group will sit down and discuss the novel during their July meeting:


BOOK DESCRIPTIONThis celebrated social comedy explores romantic intrigue and prim propriety among a colorful cast of Edwardian characters. Lucy Honeychurch, a young English woman traveling in Italy with her stuffy chaperone aunt, finds herself constrained by the claustrophobic influence of her British guardians and attracted to the free-spirited George Emerson, whose family’s radical politics make him entirely unsuitable. Sharing a spontaneous moment of passion with him in the Italian countryside, Lucy is soon at war with the snobbery of her class and her own conflicting desires. Back in England, she is courted by a more acceptable, if stifling, suitor, and soon realizes she must make a final choice for her life between convention and passion.


An in-person discussion of A Room With A View will be held on Thursday, July 28, at 3:00 PM. If you’d like to attend, please register now through our Event Calendar.

Copies of A Room With A View are currently available on our 1st Floor on the Book Discussion Shelf (just behind our New Books shelves).

You can also download a copy of A Room With A View through Overdrive (as an ebook or an audiobook) or Hoopla (as an ebook or an audiobook).
