Literature and Lunch, known casually as Lit Lunch, will return to the round table over lunch at noon on May 7 in the Card Room at the clubhouse.
Mike Garvey will kick off our return with a discussion of Somerset Maugham’s fanciful tale “Red” set in the South Seas on an island near Samoa. It is a story of obsessive love entangling a brusque, overweight and ragged skipper and a quiet recluse of an old man who lives among his books and memories. It is Sally who binds them together in a fate neither could have imagined.
Lit Lunch meets on the first Friday of the month from 12 noon to 2 p.m. to discuss a short piece of literature while enjoying lunch ordered from the Lit Lunch menu.
All are welcome to attend the discussion. An online link to the month’s selection is emailed ahead of time to those on the Lit Lunch roster. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have your name added.
To reserve your place at the table, please send your request to email@example.com by the end of the day on Thursday, May 6.
