MIT Reads community discussion: “The Casual Vacancy”

MIT Reads community discussion: “The Casual Vacancy”

April 26, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Location: W31-110 (duPont Entrance)

The MIT Libraries invites you to join the discussion about J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy, chosen in partnership with Alpha Chi Omega.

Often characterized as “a big novel about a small town,” The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults. Told against the backdrop of a seemingly perfect English town, it’s a tale of marriage, social class, and political intrigue that shines a light on social issues such as racism, poverty, domestic violence, and addiction.  All of this unfolds with Rowling’s characteristic eye for characters and story-telling flair, with a touch of dark humor.
