“A God In Ruins”: A Future Classics Book Discussion with Dr. Mark Schenker

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

“A God in Ruins” relates the life of Teddy Todd – would-be poet, heroic World War II bomber pilot, husband, father, and grandfather – as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century. For all Teddy endures in battle, his greatest challenge will be to face living in a future he never expected to have. An ingenious and moving exploration of one ordinary man's path through extraordinary times, “A God in Ruins” proves that Kate Atkinson is one of the finest novelists of our age. Books will be available for loan at the circulation desk. Dr. Mark J. Schenker, Senior Associate Dean of Yale College and Dean of Academic Affairs will lead the lively discussions. He has led book discussions in Connecticut libraries for over 15 years, and has given numerous lectures on writers and their works.
