Boise Public Library Serves Up 'Literature for Lunch'
Monthly discussion series focuses on Modernism and WW1

The fall/winter "Literature for Lunch" discussion series begins in October, and is hosted by the Boise Public Library. The focus for this series is "Representing the Good Soldier: Modernism and WWI." The discussion group will meet over the lunch hour once each month from October through December. The following books will be featured:

¢November: "Jacob's Room," by Virginia Woolf. This is the story of a young man who comes of age just before the war, as told through the perspectives of the women and friends in his life. The story reveals how the institutions of England mold young men for service in defense of the empire.

¢December: "Some Do Not...," by Ford Maddox Ford. Christopher Tietjens, a brilliant statistician at odds with the government during WWI, must negotiate his traditional Tory values which are brought into conflict by his obligations to his vindictive, socialite wife and his love for a charismatic new woman.

All discussions run from 12:10 to 1 p.m., and are free and open to the public. Books are available at Rediscovered Books (which offers a 10-percent discount), and at the BSU Bookstore (which gives a 25-percent discount). For more information, contact BSU English Professor Cheryl Hindrichs at 208-345-1510, or via email at cherylhindrichs@boisestate.edu.
