Great Literature Discussion: Frangipani House by Beryl Gilroy (Hybrid)
September 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Mama King, an elderly woman with an indomitable spirit is placed in a rest home in Guyana by her children who live in America. This claustrophobic experience slowly leeches away at her senses and she delves into her memories in order to survive. Eventually, she gains enough lucidity to escape. This makes the family descend on the island to find their beloved mother.
Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used. Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans.
For Zoom and in-person access information, please contact Gunther.
COVID-19 NOTICE: Only fully-vaccinated Society members are invited to attend in-person. We hope to open up to the public again as soon as possible.
