Book Chamber | November 16
- This event has passed.
Tuesday, November 16, 2021 — 6:30 pm
Join us November 16 (the 3rd Tuesday) for our quick-read play – 84, Charing Cross Road – based on the book by Helene Hanff, including:
- “for whom the bell tolls …” ;
- 200 ml. each flour, milk, and eggs; and
- Jackie Robinson and the team at Ebbets field.
Q: What do these have in common?
A: Real-life American book-lover (Helene Hanff) and British book-seller (Frank Doel) correspond over years about these topics and more.
Q: To what do they refer?
A: John Donne, Yorkshire pudding, and the Brooklyn Dodgers.
‘Buyer-seller’ evolve to ‘correspondents’, segue to ‘friends’, throughout WWII and beyond. Their letters expressing love of literature proves an apt choice for the Ebell Book Chamber.
Our virtual Ebell programs are free, but donations are greatly appreciated and help the organization during these unprecedented times.
Constance Hornig, Chair
