Thursday, July 16 : The Stranger by Albert Camus
Through the story of an ordinary though detached man unwittingly drawn into a murder in Algeria, Camus explores what he called “the nakedness of man faced with the absurd.” First published in 1946, The Stranger has become known and read the world over.
Thursday, July 30th, at 7:oo pm Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller.
“Ever since it was first performed in 1949, Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theater. In the person of Willy Loman… whose name has become a symbol for a kind of majestic grandiosity” (from the cover, Penguin, 1977).
