The February meeting of the Book Club will be on Wednesday, February 14, at 7:30 p.m. at the home of Connie Vecellio (2705 Maple Springs Blvd., Dallas 75235). We will discuss A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles. “Amor Towles skillfully transports us to The Metropol, the famed Moscow hotel where movie stars and Russian royalty hobnob, where Bolsheviks plot revolutions and intellectuals discuss the merits of contemporary Russian writers, where spies spy, thieves thieve and the danger of twentieth-century Russia lurks outside its marbled walls. It’s also where wealthy Count Alexander Rostov lives under house arrest for a poem deemed incendiary by the Bolsheviks.” “In all ways a great novel, a nonstop pleasure brimming with charm, personal wisdom, and philosophic insight . . .This is a book in which the cruelties of the age can’t begin to erase the glories of real human connection and the memories it leaves behind.” For those who like to read ahead, the March book will be Being Mortal, by Atul Gawande. Please note that the Book Club generally meets on the second Wednesday of each month.
