A Gentleman in Moscow Book Discussion
July 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This month we’ll be discussing Amor Towles’ A Gentleman in Moscow. When, in 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, he’s sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery. We welcome you to be a part of our monthly book discussion!
