ANTRIM ECLECTIC BOOK CLUB
SPONSORED BY THE ANTRIM AREA SENIOR CENTER
On Thursday, August 15, 2019, Antrim readers will gather between 11 a.m. and Noon at Antrim’s Presbyterian Church to discuss Nathanael West’s The Day of the Locust. The following questions may help guide the conversation.
- Why are those actors drawn to Hollywood such a collection of weird, damaged individuals?
- How would you characterize the infatuation nearly all of the male characters feel toward a seventeen-year-old, novice actress?
- What does this novel say about the “American Dream?”
- What does Day of the Locust say about how to deal with life’s inevitable letdowns?
