Book Discussion – Classic Book Club Wednesday, September 8 at 7 p.m. in-house at the library. The book being discussed is: “The Stranger” by Albert Camus. The title character is Meursault, an indifferent French settler in Algeria described as “a citizen of France domiciled in North Africa, a man of the Mediterranean, “yet one who hardly shares in the traditional Mediterranean culture.

Several weeks after his mother’s funeral, he kills an Arab man in French Algiers, who was involved in a conflict with one of Meursault’s neighbors. Meursault is tried and sentenced to death. The story is divided into two parts, presenting Meursault’s first-person narrative view before and after the murder, respectively.
