This June, we will be discussing a classic short novel, Breakfast at Tiffany’s as well as the stories: House of Flowers, A Diamond Guitar and A Christmas Memory.  “In this seductive, wistful masterpiece, Truman Capote created a woman whose name has entered the American idiom and whose style is a part of the literary landscape. Holly Golightly knows that nothing bad can ever happen to you at Tiffany’s; her poignancy, wit, and naïveté continue to charm. This volume also includes three of Capote’s best-known stories, “House of Flowers,” “A Diamond Guitar,” and “A Christmas Memory,” which the Saturday Review called “one of the most moving stories in our language.” It is a tale of two innocents–a small boy and the old woman who is his best friend–whose sweetness contains a hard, sharp kernel of truth.”(from the publisher)  The DVD of Breakfast at Tiffany’s will also be available, so we can compare it to the book.  Pick up a copy of the book and DVD at our main desk.  New members are always welcome.
