PageTurners Discuss "Middlesex"

Tuesday, Jun 20, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join PageTurners for a discussion of Pulitzer Prize-winning Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. The story of Calliope Stephanides and three generations of the Greek-American Stephanides family travel from a tiny village overlooking Mount Olympus in Asia Minor to Prohibition-era Detroit, witnessing its glory days as the Motor City, and the race riots of l967, before they move out to the tree-lined streets of suburban Grosse Pointe, Michigan. To understand why Calliope is not like other girls, she has to uncover a guilty family secret and the astonishing genetic history that turns Callie into Cal, one of the most audacious and wondrous narrators in contemporary fiction.
