Editorial Reviews

Featuring superstar authors like Jennifer Egan, Siri Hustvedt, and Margot Livesey, this episode of the Thalia Book Club focuses on George Eliot's masterpiece: Middlemarch. As usual, Thalia's Book Club features interactive discussions with the audience as well as celebrity readers.  This particular edition features actress Hope Davis. Davis voice is perfectly suited to Eliot's lyrical prose and in her capable hands Middlemarch comes to life. This series is wonderful for any writer or literary fan who wants to be a part of a great conversation!
