Programs & Classes

Between the Covers Book Club

  • Between the Covers Book Club will meet every first Tuesday of the month at 10:00am in the Card Room. Everyone is welcome. For the month of July, we’ll be discussing A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. This is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole’s hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is “huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans’ lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures” (Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times).  The August reading will be The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon if you’d like to get a jump start!Like to cook?
