Breakfast at Tiffany's

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
1st Wednesdays, 1 – 3 PM | Oct 5 & Nov 2
Leader: John McCausland
*This is an in-person class, meeting at the Tucker Free Library in Henniker.
New members are welcome to join this on-going group any time. The group meets throughout the year, on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month to discuss a novel chosen by the group from several “100 Best American Novels” lists. Choices have included Moby Dick, The Great Gatsby, Native Son and most recently John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath and Henry James’s The Ambassadors. Discussions are lively and informal, with the facilitator and members contributing background and historical and literary insights. Those joining the group in October should come having read Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
John McCausland has taught LINEC courses on the Bible, Chaucer, and the American novel. An Episcopal priest and one-time lawyer, he loves history, literature, theology, teaching, and learning.
