Robbins Library Book Discussion Group – “The House of the Seven Gables” 2/6


The Robbins Library Book Discussion Group will next meet on February 6 at 7pm in the Robbins Library Community Room.

They’ll be discussing “The House of the Seven Gables” by Nathaniel Hawthorne. New members are welcome.

Here’s the description from Novelist:


These words, from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s notebook, neatly encapsulate the theme of “The house of the seven gables”- that a family whose fortunes are poisoned by its past misdeeds. The sins of the Pyncheon father are visited upon his children over a period of several generations, until such time as one of his descendants unites with a member of the family he has wronged. Love conquers hate, and new blood washes away the original crime. This intriguing and insightful novel truly deserves its significant place in the canon of American literature.

Copies of the book are available now at the front desk at Robbins after Jan 4. Want an ebook or audiobook? ebooks through overdrive and commonwealth ebook collection. digital audiobook on hoopla.
