Library Book Group Reads Autumn

An unforgettable story about aging and time and love

PASO ROBLES, CA –October 1, 2021  Join the Library Book Group’s Zoom discussion of Autumn by Ali Smith on Thursday, November 18, 6:00-7:00 pm.

This Man-Booker Prize Finalist and first in the Seasonal Quartet Series is an unforgettable story about aging and time and love—and stories themselves. Autumn is a season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Two old friends—Daniel, a centenarian, and Elisabeth, born in 1984—look to both the future and the past as the United Kingdom stands divided by a historic, once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand-in-hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever. A luminous meditation on the meaning of richness and harvest and worth, Autumn casts an eye over our own time: Who are we? What are we made of? Shakespearean jeu d’esprit, Keatsian melancholy, the sheer bright energy of 1960s pop art. Autumn is wide-ranging in timescale and light-footed through histories.

The title is available in print and audiobook through the library, as an eBook on the Overdrive/Libby platform, and as an audiobook on the hoopla Digital platform. Space is limited. Registration is required for each participant. For ages 16+.
