Classics Book Club

The Classics Book Club has been meeting at Towne since the mid-2010s and is led by longtime Towne customer Kathy. The club reads just as the name would suggest – the classics! Anything from Austen to Zola is included in the selections and books are voted on by the members of the book club.

Denis Diderot (1713-1784) was among the greatest writers of the Enlightenment, and in Jacques the Fatalist he brilliantly challenged the artificialities of conventional French fiction of his age. Riding through France with his master, the servant Jacques appears to act as though he is truly free in a world of dizzying variety and unpredictability.
