Book and a Movie - Pavilion of Women

Saturday, March 15, 2014



Book & A Movie celebrates National Women's History Month with a discussion of Pavilion of Women, a story by Pulitzer Prize winning author Pearl S. Buck, about Madame Wu, who, on her 40th birthday, tells her husband that she will no longer sleep with him and will find a country girl to replace her in intimacy.   Madame Wu relishes her independence, reading forbidden books despite the uproar her decision causes, until her son's English tutor, a free-thinking priest, changes her life.  The movie, 116 minutes, starring Willem Dafoe, will follow the book discussion. Those who want to discuss the book are invited to stay to view the movie and those who only want to view the movie are welcome to do so. Multiple copies of the book are available at the South Norwalk Branch Library. Refreshments will be served.  This program is free and open to the public. Registration is available online or by calling 203.899.2790 x 15902.
