Cairnwood Book Club

Tuesday, September 25th at 7:30pm

We invite you to the enthralling and spirited world of the Gilded Age. The Cairnwood “Literary Guild” enjoys titles that bring the turn-of-the-century to life! Members and guests meet throughout the year to discuss the reading selection surrounded by the elegant ambiance of the Estate.

Summer reading selection: “The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde

In this celebrated work, Wilde forged a devastating portrait of the effects of evil and debauchery on a young aesthete in late-19th-century England. Combining elements of the Gothic horror novel and decadent French fiction, the book centers on a striking premise: As Dorian Gray sinks into a life of crime and gross sensuality, his body retains perfect youth and vigor while his recently painted portrait grows day by day into a hideous record of evil, which he must keep hidden from the world. For over a century, this mesmerizing tale of horror and suspense has enjoyed wide popularity. It ranks as one of Wilde’s most important creations and among the classic achievements of its kind.
