A DISCUSSION OF DJUNA BARNES’ NIGHTWOOD AND
AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET OTHER LAS VEGAS READERS

Join us for our August Book Club meetup, where we'll be discussing Djuna Barnes' 1936 novel Nightwood. This stylistically rich work is the story of Robin Vote—a rapacious woman moving through post-WWI Europe, derailing the lives of her husband, her child and her multiple female lovers. In her introduction, Jeanette Winterson describes the experience of reading the novel as “…like drinking wine with a pearl dissolving in the glass. You have taken in more than you know, and it will go on doing its work. From now on, a part of you pearl-lined.”

An hour-long group discussion will be followed by an informal reception. Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance.

Copies of Nightwood can be purchased in paperback at The Writer's Block Book Shop. To register for the Book Club, complete this form or call 702-550-6399.
