Book Discussion: The Brothers Karamazov

Join us on Wednesday, October 4th for the conclusion of the two part discussion of what is possibly Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky's finest novel, The Brothers Karamazov. [Dostoevsky is] at once the most literary and compulsively readable of novelists we continue to regard as great….The Brothers Karamazov stands as the culmination of his art—his last, longest, richest, and most capacious book. [This] scrupulous rendition can only be welcomed. It returns to us a work we thought we knew, subtly altered and so made new again. --Washington Post Book World ‚ÄčThis book group will be reorganizing itself for its 2018 reading season, and will be considering a number of different themes, periods, and reading selections.
