Big Books/Bleak House

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Hammond Room

Critics widely praised Charles Dickens’s complex novel, Bleak House, which at its core dramatizes basic human conflicts that people throughout time encounter. The story centers around the monumental, never-ending, and literally life-consuming court case of Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce, which gives Dickens license to satirize the convoluted English legal system. A huge cast of distinctive characters— Esther Summerson, a ward of court, whose parentage is a source of deepening mystery; the menacing lawyer Tulkinghorn; the determined sleuth Inspector Bucket; Jo, the destitute little crossing-sweeper; the tragic Lady Dedlock—populate the fierce yet often comic novel from the London slums to the grand country estates. 

Join us for a nine-week dive into what many consider Dickens’s greatest novel! Leading this fall’s Big Books discussion will be Holly Marihugh, who has guided discussions of literary fiction for seven years. In 2014-15, she blogged about people living and working in Winnetka and published a book of those posts under the title Winnetka60093. Holly also summarizes and narrates current biographies of inspiring people in audio-visual presentations.  

The Big Books discussion series is sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library. Registration is required and space is limited. Glencoe residents will get priority if the class fills up. Registration opens September 1; visit the library’s website or call to register. Registrants will receive an email from the library with information on reading assignments.
