Program Description


The Moon and Sixpence is a representative work of realist literature by British writer Somerset Maugham. Perhaps most people only look for six pennies on the ground and forget to look up to admire the beautiful moon. Does the “moon” in the book represent the beautiful ideals, poetry and distance? And “sixpence” represents the cruel reality? What are your thoughts? Let’s discuss it together!

Sunnie Zhang is a columnist who loves reading, food and travel. She will lead a book discussion in Chinese. Copies of the book are available in Chinese at the Circulation Desk.

Jericho cardholders only until 14 days before event.
