IDYLLWILD LIBRARY Fireside Book Group ~ "Lolita"

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Event Details

September 24-30 is Banned Books Week. We took the liberty of choosing a banned book for October's meeting. "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov is his most famous controversial novel. "Awe and exhilaration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hyper civilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation." ~ Amazon. Full of dark comedy and innuendo, yet sophisticated & elegant. Join us as we find out if it is as truly controversial as is once was. All are welcome to join us for our book club.
