Short Book Book Club

DateMonday 11 March 2024




The Short Book Book Club meets in the Hub each term and reads books no longer than 200 pages. All College members are welcome to attend.

This term’s book is Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. ‘Through the eyes of a visitor from the city, trapped for a winter in snowbound Starkfield, readers glimpse the hidden histories of this austere and beautiful land. Piecing together the story of monosyllabic Ethan Frome, his grim wife, Zeena, and Mattie Silver, her charming cousin, Wharton explores psychological dead-lock: frustration, longing, resentment, passion.’ (


Open to: Members of Kellogg College,
