The Page Turners: Dombey and Son

Page Turners, the Monday afternoon book group hosted by CHML, continues its discovery of classics old and new.

This month we will begin a two part discussion of Dombey and Son (1848). In this Charles Dickens novel, we see a dramatic difference in the treatment of son and daughter. The novel also examines the impact of the railroad on Victorian England, commerce in Britain and its empire , and class relations depicted in a way that is quintessential Dickens.

The November 4th session will focus on chapters 1 through 32, and on December 9th the novel will be discussed in its entirety.

The January 14th title will be Toni Morrison’s Sula.

The Page Turners is welcome to everyone, and we select books by consensus! If you’d like to join the group’s email list to receive notifications of meetings and questions to consider in advance, please contact discussion leader Sue Lanser:
