Montgomery City-County Public Library Event Calendar

Time: 2:00 PM -
Title: Book Bunch Book Club
Location: Governors Square Branch Library
Intended Audience: Adult

The group will be discussing the classic historical novel A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, the memorable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front, and his love for a beautiful English nurse. Hemingway’s frank portrayal of the love between Lieutenant Henry and Catherine Barkley, caught in the tragic sweep of war, glows with intensity. Hemingway vividly describes certain battles of World War I, such as the German attack on Caporetto—with lines of tired men marching in the rain, hungry, tired, and demoralized. This is a story of love and pain, of loyalty and desertion, and serene beauty amidst a world of chaos.
