Next up is . . .

The Crucible, by Arthur Miller

A haunting examination of groupthink and mass hysteria in a rural community.

“I believe that the reader will discover here the essential nature of one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history,” Arthur Miller wrote in an introduction to The Crucible, his classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in seventeenth-century Salem, Massachusetts. Based on historical people and real events, Miller’s drama is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, November 3, 2016.
