Stoner follows the semi-tragic figure William Stoner, who is born to a poor farming family and sent to university to study agriculture, where he instead becomes devoted to literature. His life as a scholar and professor never goes exactly to plan, and his various relationships seem to drift away from the ideal as well. Yet as his life goes on, Stoner slowly comes to be seen as a hero when contrasted with the cruel world around him.

Texas-born Williams devoted most of his life to studying and teaching literature after returning from World War II, and though he died in 1994. Stoner was rediscovered the following decade and became a bestseller on several continents.

Free admission, no registration necessary.

About the Amerikahaus Literary Circle
The Amerikahaus Literary Circle (AHLC) is a grassroots, English-language book club that meets monthly at the Amerikahaus to discuss works of American literature and, thereby, foster a conversation of transatlantic understanding. The AHLC meetings are free; the reading list is comprised of books that have been nominated and selected by the members of the AHLC.
