'Metamorphosis'

Winter-Spring-Summer Discussion Series

The theme for our upcoming book discussion series will be “Metamorphosis.” The theme of bodily transformation is persistent throughout the history of literature, from the earliest myths to present day comic books. We explore this theme through different genres and eras and discuss why the idea of metamorphosis holds such power over the human imagination. Every meeting will feature a lecture from a guest professor from a local college, followed by a discussion of the work. The guest lecturers appear courtesy of the Friends of the Chevy Chase Library.

Announcing 'Lowbrow Throwdown' Book Club

'After' by Anna Todd

We love the classics and literary fiction here at the Chevy Chase library, but it can’t all be Middlemarch, right?  Sometimes you have to read something fun, easy and frequently ridiculous. Then, preferably, you want to discuss it over drinks with friends. Hence Chevy Chase DC Library’s new book club, Lowbrow Throwdown.
