some thoughts about Tristram Shandy

- Is this book still funny?

- Who has a better outlook on life Tristram's father or his Uncle Toby?

- What about the hobby horse?

- Sterne copied many passages directly from other 18th century authors. Should this change the way we view the book?

Come discuss The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Saturday May 21st at the Main Library in the 3rd Floor Program Room at 11am. Feel free to bring food and drink.
