ICL: BOOK STUDY ON THE PLAGUE BY ALBERT CAMUS - 6 Sessions
BOOK STUDY ON THE PLAGUE BY ALBERT CAMUS by J. Patrick Mahon, 6 Sessions, Thursday, September 24 – October 29, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
This novel is centered in Oran in Algiers. Oran in real life has suffered plagues and this novel sets the plague in the 1940s. When COVID erupted, I re-read the novel and was struck by the way the plague and the characters respond to the threat----a response not unlike ours. The book study will challenge our thinking about our response to COVID 19.
