Tompkins County Public Library will host the winter session of its popular “4 Seasons Book Club” February 5 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the BorgWarner Room—West.
Participants will enjoy a lively discussion of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic, “Tender is the Night.”
Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, “Tender Is the Night” explores the tragic and tumultuous relationships between young actress Rosemary Hoyt and seemingly-glamorous American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own and whose growing strength highlights Dick's harrowing demise. A profound study of the romantic concept of character, “Tender Is the Night” is lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative.
Participation in the “4 Seasons Book Club” is available online and in-person. Face-to-face meeting dates in 2015 are scheduled for February 5, April 2, June 4 and October 1. Online discussions are ongoing and by invitation only. The online
“4 Seasons Book Club” is available through Goodreads.com, a "free website for book lovers.” To register, visit http://www.goodreads.com.
