AM Book Group: "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger
Tuesday, May 17, 2022, 10:30am - 11:30am

The book group will be discussing the classic novel "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger. 

"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth." The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caufield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.

Copies will be available to check out at the front desk one month before the discussion. To join the book group, stop by the reference desk or emailThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. New members are welcome.
