NLC Literary Circle – The Plague/La Peste

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the NLC Literary Circle for some lively discussion around this month’s chosen novel:

The Plague/La Peste

The townspeople of Oran are in the grip of a deadly plague, which condemns its victims to a swift and horrifying death. Fear, isolation and claustrophobia follow as they are forced into quarantine. Each person responds in their own way to the lethal disease: some resign themselves to fate, some seek blame, and a few, like Dr Rieux, resist the terror.

Face aux souffrances comme à la mort, à l’ennui des recommencements, La Peste recense les conduites ; elle nous impose la vision d’un univers sans avenir ni finalité, un monde de la répétition et de l’étouffante monotonie, où le drame même cesse de paraître dramatique et s’imprègne d’humour macabre…

This a joint event with the French Society. You are invited to read the book in either English or French. The discussion will be in English. For more info please contact
