Bookmarks at the Museum Presents the Fifty Shades Trilogy
Join Dennis Norman for Bookmarks at the Museum at the Westchester Township History Museum. Refreshments will be served. Scandalous and intriguing, raunchy and sinful. Few books have impassioned as much debate, conversation, and excitement as the "Fifty Shades Trilogy" by British author E.L. James. Though panned by some literary critics as “asinine,” “depressing,” and “torturous,” the erotic trilogy was No. 1 on the list of bestselling books in USA Today for 20 weeks, breaking a previous record of 16 weeks and "The Hunger Games." But what is the fuss all about? Norman will explore the social and moral implications of the "Fifty Shades Trilogy" and the public response to it. Bookmarks takes place on the third Thursday of the month at the museum and on the third Friday of the month at Michigan City Public Library, 100 E. 4th St., Michigan City. It is not necessary to read the book before attending. Books are available at both Thomas and Hageman Libraries. The museum, a free cultural and educational service of Westchester Public Library, is open to the public Wednesday-Sunday from 1-5 p.m. or by appointment.
