Book Talk to be held Thursday
Book Talk begins its new season on September 12 with a discussion of “The Great Gatsby.” The 7:00 p.m. meeting is at the Donald W. Reynolds Community City and Library, 1515 W. Main in Durant.
Leading the discussion will be Dr. Elbert R. Hill, retired Professor of English from Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
The classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, originally published in 1925, has been admired by generations of readers for its keen insight into human nature, its sharp portrayal of the excesses of the Jazz Age, and for its lyrical writing. A recent motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio has helped reintroduce it to modern readers.
Dr. Hill was, until his 2006 retirement from SOSU, a specialist in children’s and young adult literature, and had taught at SOSU for nearly 40 years. A native of Tennessee, he received the B.A. degree from Carson-Newman College, the M.A. from Memphis State University and the Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska.
Book Talk discussions are open to the public, and copies of monthly selections are available for purchase at the library service desk. The group meets the second Thursday of each month, except for December and summer months.
