Book Discussion – A Gentleman in Moscow

October 30th, 2018 · No Comments · Book Group, Books, City Library, E-Books, Events, Main Branch, News, Trustees

Our Thursday evening book discussion group will be meeting to discuss ‘A Gentleman in Moscow’ by Amor Towles. In this novel Count Alexander Rostov is sentenced by the Bolsheviks to house arrest in a grand hotel in early 20th century Moscow. “When, in 1922, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery.”(

Plan to join us on Thursday, November 8th, at 7 PM in Hunt Room. Anyone interested is welcome to participate in our book discussions. Copies of our book discussion books and the reading lists for our upcoming book discussions can be found at the Information Desk. Can’t make the discussion on Thursday night?  Consider borrowing a copy from the library and enjoying it at your own pace. This novel is available in multiple formats: audio-book on CD, downloadable e-book, downloadable audio-book and large print. For questions and for more information please call the Information Desk at 624-6550 ext. 3319.

See you at the book discussion!
