This will be a virtual book club meeting. Please contact Kelsey at cvillehoosbookclub[at]gmail[dot]com for more information.
UVA alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends in the Charlottesville community are invited to join us for the UVA Club of Charlottesville’s virtual June book club, where we will discuss Zadie Smith’s novel On Beauty.
About the Book: Winner of the 2006 Orange Prize for fiction, another bestselling masterwork from the celebrated author of Swing Time and White Teeth.
On Beauty is the story of an interracial British/American family living in the university town of Wellington, Massachusetts, whose misadventures on both sides of the Atlantic skewer everything from family life to political correctness to the combustive collision between the personal and the political. Full of dead-on wit and relentlessly funny, this tour de force confirms Zadie Smith’s reputation as a major literary talent.
Please note that the UVA Club of Charlottesville Book Club will be taking a break for the months of July and August and will return in September.
