Monday Night Fiction: ‘The History of Love’

Schreiner University’s Monday Night Fiction series will discuss “The History of Love” by Nicole Kraus at 7 p.m., Monday, April 16, in the Scarle-Philips Room of the William Logan Library on the Schreiner campus. Sally Hannay, assistant professor of English, will lead the discussion.

“The History of Love” deals with the love story of Leo Gursky, a Polish Jew who came to America during the Second World War. The novel’s title is also the title of Gursky’s lost manuscript that he gave to his beloved Alma before the war. Kraus’ novel includes some inventive graphic design elements, including icons for each of the main characters, and was a finalist for the 2006 Orange Prize for Fiction, one of the United Kingdom’s most important awards.

Monday Night Fiction is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Schreiner’s Center for Innovative Learning.
