Monday Night Fiction to Feature ‘Mr. Mee’ Sept. 13
Schreiner Schreiner University’s Monday Night Fiction series will discuss “Mr. Mee” by Andrew Crumey at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 13, in the Scarle-Philips Room of the William Logan Library on the Schreiner campus. Dr. Cole Starr, assistant professor of religion and philosophy at Schreiner, will lead the discussion.
Crumey has a doctorate in theoretical physics and is the former literary editor of Scotland on Sunday. “Mr. Mee,” his fourth novel, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year in 2000. The book is about the eponymous protagonist, a book collector in his 80s, who discovers the Internet and changes his life. Central to the story is Mr. Mee’s investigation of the creation and disappearance of the 200-year-old Rosier’s Encyclopedia.
Monday Night Fiction is sponsored by Schreiner’s Center for Innovative Learning. For more information about this or any other Schreiner University humanities event, contact Martha York at the Center for Innovative Learning, (830) 792-7352.
