Classics Book Club

Wythe County Public Library

Some books come and go, but there a few that do not go out of style. The ones with 18th century characters that 21st century readers can relate to. The ones that can change your perspective on history and humanity. The ones that have stood the test of time. These are the “classics.”

Classic Book Club members discover a different “Classic” author every month. Choose a book to read that was written by or about each month’s designated author (listed below). Then at the club meetings (every 2nd Thursday of the month at 10am at Wythe County Public Library) we discuss the author and watch a film based on one of the author’s books.

Movie: a movie based on Wilde’s novel “Dorian Gray”

April (meeting Apr 11)
