CommUnity Book Club--The Sun Also Rises Mar 23, 2017 from 07:00 PM to 08:00 PM
The Sun Also Rises is considered to be one of Ernest Hemingway's masterpieces, and helped establish him as one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century. An affecting look at the so-called Lost Generation of the post-World War I era, the novel follows a group of young expatriates from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris, to the violent bullfighting rings of Spain. One review of The Sun Also Rises states that "no matter how many times you've read it or how you feel about the manners and morals of the characters, you won't be able to resist its spell. This is a classic that really does live up to its reputation." Contact the library to obtain a copy and join in the discussion.
