Really Good Book Discussion
Thursday, April 04, 2019, 07:00pm

The Springfield Free Public Library's (Really Good!) Book Discussion Group will meet on Thursday, April 4th at 7 p.m. to discuss Travels with My Aunt by Graham Greene.

The library is celebrating 50 years of service at our current location and this novel was popular in 1969. Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager who had been looking forward to a life occupied by dahlias, is dragged into crime and exotic travel by his wayward Aunt Augusta. They embark on a journey from suburban London to Brighton to Istanbul to South America. The novel explores the sorrows of war, a hilarious send-up of 1960s counter culture, and surprising revelations about Henry himself. Graham Greene described his most enjoyably straightforward comedy as ‘the only book I have written for the fun of it”.

Discussions take place at 7 p.m. in the Staff Room. Refreshments are served. New members are welcome. To reserve your copy of the book call 973-376-4930 x228 or send an email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
