Wilton's Senior Center will host a book discussion of Tenth of December: Stories on Tuesday, March 26 from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
This collection of stories by MacArthur Fellow and Booker Prize-winner George Saunders offers something for everyone and will tantalize and move its readers. There's the pathos of the title story about an encounter between a misfit boy and a dying cancer patient on a frozen pond in December. Another delivers the intensity of love-inducing pharmaceutical experiments on prisoners by a demented warden. One is in the form of a management memo about a mysterious department whose function is never explicitly revealed. Whimsical, funny, and certainly unconventional, Saunders is an impish post-modernist following in the steps of Twain or Vonnegut. The New York Times Book Review named it one of the top ten books of 2013 and The New York Times Magazine bluntly stated when it came out: "The best book you'll read this year."
Call the Senior Center for details and to register at (203) 834-6240.
Comstock Community Center is located at 180 School Road, Wilton, Conn.
