Do you enjoy reading books in English? Our Literary Circle discusses a different book each month. You can drop by regularly or you can join us for only one evening. Mark Olival-Bartley leads the discussion. Free admission.

Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut

Literary Circle / Free admission


Broad humor and bitter irony collide in this fictional autobiography of Rabo Karabekian, an Armenian-American Abstract Expressionist painter who, at the age of seventy-one, only wants to be left alone in his beachfront estate on Long Island with the secret he has locked inside his potato barn safely secured. But then Circe, a mysterious young widow, badgers Rabo into telling his life story—and Vonnegut, thereby, tells us the plain, heart-hammering truth about art and mankind’s ceaseless and careless fancy to create or destroy that which is loved most.
