Alternative Book Discussion at World Chess Hall of Fame: Night Train to Lisbon

Wednesday, September 14th/ 6:30 P.M./ $5

Night Train to Lisbon is a haunting tale of repression, resistance, and the universal need to connect. Mercier introduces a chess-playing academic, a chance encounter with a foreign woman, and a text within the novel, as the catalysts for an odyssey that delves into the question of national and personal identity. 

Join us for a lively discussion of the book; then explore the complexities of image and identity through mask making and collage. Alternative Book Group isn’t just for reading, its for finding inspiration in new places.

$5 at the Door | Free for WCHOF Members (If you haven’t finished the book you can still join the discussion, we’ll try to avoid spoilers!)
