Getting ready for our first meeting this session on Saturday, November 15 at 11 a.m. – subject – in case you forgot is WWI.
I just got back from a trip to Eastern Europe where WWI was much discussed as the ending of empires as we traveled across countries much involved in that war. And just started reading The Sleepwalkers which is touted as one of the best explanations of how this war came to be.
If it is confession time, I carried Parade’s End with me on the trip and I tried to read it – I really did. But it turns out to be a compilation of 4 books and at least the first one Some Do Not seems much more about the character of Christopher Tietjens and his very bored wife than about the period around the war. So while I may come back to it, it won’t be discussed at this meeting.
Hope you have found something interesting to read – remember that Jeremy put a display upstairs with some appropriate titles. Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.
