A Word Child
by Iris Murdoch

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 - 6:30pm to 7:45pm

Hillary Burde is a brilliant wordsmith who too quickly plunged into obscurity by disappointment over his love life. In A Word Child, we meet Burde twenty years after his time at Oxford. He now works a repetitive civil service job where he comes face to face with the man he believes threw his life astray.

This is the first of two meetings discussing A Word Child. World Literature meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month (excluding holidays). All MI members are welcome to drop in to these meetings.
