‘Klara and the Sun’ is Summer reading for the Friends of VCU Libraries Book Club
The Friends of VCU Libraries Book Club will meet Sunday , June 27 at 2 p.m. on the third floor Terrace at the Cabell Library. For those who wish to join remotely, we will have an option for you to join via Zoom. The book selected for discussion this month is Klara and the Sun, the latest by Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro.
From the publisher’s website, the book: “tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her. Klara and the Sun is a thrilling book that offers a look at our changing world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and one that explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love?”
Ken Hopson, Manager of Innovative Media at VCU Libraries will moderate the event. Ken’s work includes overseeing multimedia software and hardware for 3D scanning, modeling and printing, video and audio, graphics, GIS and data visualization, gaming and extended realities, format conversions and distribution and more as it relates to VCU Libraries Makerspace, The Workshop.
The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend or will join us via Zoom. Please join us for a great discussion!
