10:30 a.m.Book Discussion: "The Best of Everything: a Novel" by Rona Jaffe

10:30 a.m.Book Discussion: "The Stranger" by Albert Camus
A young Algerian, Meursault, afflicted with a sort of aimless inertia, becomes embroiled in the petty intrigues of a local pimp and, somewhat inexplicably, ends up killing a man. Once he's imprisoned and eventually brought to trial, his crime, it becomes apparent, is not so much the arguably defensible murder he has committed as it is his deficient character.
