Keeping It Classy! Book Club

Description: The Whiton Branch Library on 100 N Main Street will have its April meeting of Keeping It Classy Book Club on Thursday April 13, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. This monthís selection is Gulliverís Travels by Jonathan Swift.
In Gulliverís Travels, shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters - with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms and the brutish Yahoos - give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behavior. Swift's savage satire views mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves. (Description from Goodreads.com).
