Catch-Up Book Club: Bleak House
21 July 2020 5:30pm
The Catch-Up Book Club is an informal group we run in partnership with the Department of English and Linguistics. A University of Otago lecturer, or other uniquely qualified person, talks about a classic you’ve heard about, read long ago, loved the film(s) or TV adaption(s), or have always meant to read; with questions and observations from the group … everyone is welcome, even those who actually aren’t going to read the book but would like to know more!
5.30pm for 6pm start: Join us at the bookshop for tea, coffee and treats; with a 6.00pm start for the talk, followed by bookish chat with fellow booklovers.
FREE! Seats are limited, and really popular, so please RSVP for each session: 03 477 6976 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Bleak House by Charles Dickens, with Dr Grace Moore
A fortune, several wills, opposing beneficiaries, and a lot of lawyers: Dickens explores, in his inimitable way, the lives of many magnificently-named characters, all entangled in the case of Jarndyce v. Jarndyce.
