From the early 1900’s to post-WWII, from Kafka to Camus, this virtual book club will explore existentialism, absurdism, war, the role of literature, and beautiful prose, among many other topics. This club will meet on the first Friday of each month to discuss the reading selection. The Claremont Gerontology Association, a group of dedicated volunteers from the Claremont Colleges, is excited to read good books and have great discussions with you! Preregistration is required by calling the Joslyn Center at (909) 399-5488 or emailing at JoslynCenter@ci.claremont.ca.us.
