Unbound Book Discussion

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
A new group is in town for book discussions, trivia, and more! Meet us at Ballydoyle Irish Pub (5157 Main St.) the third Thursday, every other month.

This time we're discussing The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Dorian Gray is a beautiful young man living in 19th century London when he has his portrait painted. In a Faustian bargain, he wishes for only the painting to age and for himself to stay the same. The theme of this cautionary tale is to be careful what you wish for because it may just come true.
