Afternoon Book Group – The Magic Mountain @ Brewster Ladies' Library
Aug 29 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Beginning this year, the Afternoon Book Group will be meeting in the summer and will be discussing the book The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann.  During the July meeting, chapters 1-5 will be discussed.  Chapters 6-7 will be discussed in August.  “The Magic Mountain is the story of an unassuming, undistinguished young engineer named Hans Castorp who sits on the balcony of a sanatorium, wrapped in his camel’s hair blanket, thermometer in his mouth, naively but earnestly pondering the meaning of life, time, and his love for the beautiful Frau Chauchat. Among the other characters on this Germanic ship of fools are the malapropian Frau Stohr; Hofrat Behrens, the head doctor, and his hearty but sick-looking sidekick, Dr. Krokowski; Ludovico Settembrini, the enlightened humanist; Han’s noble cousin Joachim Ziemssen; and Hermine Kleefeld, who, with her whistling pneumothorax, is the pride of the Half-Lung Club. In this community organization completely in reference to disease, Hans Castrop achieves a kind of transcendence unimaginable in the world of the “flatlands” below him.” – Provided by Syndetics.  Free and open to all.
