January Briggs Library Book Club
Come discuss the timeless story of Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez on January 17 at noon in the Briggs Library McGinnis Room. For more information about the Briggs Library Book Club please contact Kristina Smith.
In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years having affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.
The book club will not be meeting in December.
