  • Brown Bag Book Discussion Online

    moviegoerTuesday, March 23, 12:30-1:30pm. Join us for a discussion of The Moviegoer by Percy Walker. The Moviegoer tells the story of Jack "Binx" Bolling, a young stock-broker in postwar New Orleans. The decline of tradition in the Southern United States, the problems of his family and his traumatic experiences in the Korean War have left him alienated from his own life. He day-dreams constantly, has trouble engaging in lasting relationships, and finds more meaning and immediacy in movies and books than in his own routine life. If you would like to join, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
