Nobel Prize

Nobel Prize for Literature

β€œIt was like when you make a move in chess and just as you take your finger off the piece, you see the mistake you've made, and there's this panic because you don't know yet the scale of disaster you've left yourself open to.”

― Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go

Our next read for the SML Book Club is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiquro and what a timely choice because it was recently announced that Mr. Ishiguro was awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature. This prestigious prize always raises the profile of a writer and that will make for a more interesting discussion come December. "Never Let Me Go" is a novel about cloning and is set in a dystopia not altogether unrecognizable. The book was adapted for a movie starring Keira Knightley in 2010. Other works from Mr. Ishiguro include The Remains of the Day which also became a well-known movie starring Anthony Hopkins. We are looking forward to reading and discussion "Never Let Me Go" and we invite anyone who is interested in the book and joining the discussion to attend the next book on the 1st Wednesday in December. If you want to place a hold on the book click here. If you want us to reserve a copy for you give us a call at 920-596-2252. We extend our congratulations and best wishes to Kazuo Ishiguro and look forward to the discussion in December.
