Anyone who enjoys reading and discussing books is welcome to join us for The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje. In the early 1950s, a young boy named Michael makes an ocean
journey from Ceylon to meet his mother in England. He is relegated to the dining table of the ship’s lower class passengers, dubbed the cat’s table, where he meets colorful characters who introduce him to the adult worlds of jazz, women, and literature. You’ll enjoy following the boy’s escapades, told from the point of view of the adult Michael, who only then understands the import of what he experienced.
Book reviews and other information concerning upcoming books are available at the Reference Desk. The books are available at the Library approximately one month before the discussion.
