featuring Eliza Rose, Laszlo Birinyi, Sr., Fellow in Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures

“A modern classic, Being There is a brilliantly satiric look at the unreality of American media culture that is, if anything, more trenchant now than ever.”—Grove Press

“A quirky, brilliant novel starring Chauncey Gardiner, an enigmatic man who rises from nowhere to become a media phenomenon‘a fabulous creature of our age'”Newsweek

Being There is one of those rare books which echoes in the mind long after you have finished it. It will survive as a seminal work of the Seventies.”—New York Post

Meeting Date: Tuesday, April 7
