Somers Library Classic Book Group meets to discuss “Bleak House,” by Charles Dickens

July 22 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm


Available to attend either in person or virtually via Zoom,

First published in 1852, “Bleak House” is the complex story of a notorious law-suit in which love and inheritance are set against the classic urban background of 19th century London, where fog on the river, seeping into the very bones of the characters, symbolizes the corruption of the legal system and the society that supports it. Dickens brought all his passion, brilliance and narrative verve to this huge novel of the lives entangled in a multi-generational lawsuit—and through it he achieved, at age 41, “a stature almost Shakespearean.” This book is widely hailed as “Dickens greatest work.”

The Somers Library Classic Book Group discusses classic titles recommended by the group, identified by surveys, and facilitated by Librarian Diana Cunningham. The group meets bimonthly on Monday nights. Meetings are hybrid and open to all interested Somers residents. Copies of the current title to be discussed are available at the Library.

Registration required for new members, please go to our online calendar.
Our programs are supported by the Friends of the Somers Library through our patrons’ generous contributions.
