This month our "page-to-screen" book club is reading Nobel Prize-winning British author Kazuo Ishiguro's novel THE REMAINS OF THE DAY, which won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 1989. The novel is told in first-person narration by Stevens, an English butler who has dedicated his life in service to the recently deceased Lord Darlington, and largely focuses on Stevens unresolved relationship with a former colleague, Miss Kenton the housekeeper.
Ask for a copy of the book at the Humanities Desk on the 2nd Floor of the Central Library. Read the book, then come for a screening of the acclaimed 1993 film adaptation, starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson and nominated for 8 Academy Awards, on Saturday, August 17 at 2:00 p.m. in Meeting Room A, followed by a discussion about the book and the movie. Even if you haven't read the book, you are welcome to join us to watch the movie and participate in the conversation!
