In this day of isolation, community is still alive! We welcome you to join the book club on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 7pm via ZOOM to discuss the book “Death and the Maiden” by Ariel Dorfman. This is an open event for residents & their guests who would like to join us.
“Suspenseful, riveting . . . Achieves a universality that is movingly personal.” —The New York Times
“The explosively provocative, award-winning drama set in a country that has just emerged from a totalitarian dictatorship. Gerardo Escobar has just been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime when his car breaks down and he is picked up by the humane doctor Roberto Miranda. But in the voice of this good Samaritan, Gerardo’s wife, Paulina Salas, thinks she recognizes another man—the one who raped and tortured her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before.
Relentlessly paced and filled with lethal surprises, Death and the Maiden is an inquest into the darker side of humanity—one in which everyone is implicated and justice itself comes to seem like a fragile, perhaps ambiguous invention.” – Amazon
Sound interesting? If so, start reading and join us on Wednesday, May 20th at 7pm via ZOOM. We hope to see you there!
