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.

Londinium: A Digger's Eye View of Roman London

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Forte Reference Room

In 43 AD, the Romans founded the city of Londinium in the marshy Thames Valley. The city survived fire and rebellion and grew from a small trading port to the provincial capitol of Britain with up to 60,000 residents. Former Glencoe resident Ellen Green returns to explore what day to day life would have been like in Londinium and how archaeologists are able to reconstruct the urban landscape from what was left behind. In particular she will discuss discoveries made on recent digs she participated in, including the Harper Road sarcophagus (the first of its kind found in 18 years and one of only three ever found in London) and a series of Roman workshops unearthed next to the city wall. Ms. Green has worked as an archaeologist in Transylvania, York, Durham, and London. Currently a field archaeologist for Pre-Construct Archaeology, she has a BA in archaeology and ancient civilizations and a MSc in paleopathology from the University of Durham, and specializes in human remains. She is firmly of the belief that nothing is better than a day spent down a hole, covered in mud, looking for interesting things.
