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.
