Classic Book Discussion: Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott 

When: Thu., Oct. 27, 3-4 p.m.
Phone: 336-6060
This meeting covers chapter 26 to the end. Ivanhoe follows Wilfred of Ivanhoe, one of the few Saxon families when English nobility was dominated by the Normans, who is out of favour with his father for his allegiance to the Norman king, Richard the Lionheart. The gripping storyline beautifully captures the 12th century tensions between Saxons and Normans, Nobility and Commonality and Jews and Gentiles, with a whole host of well-known characters from Robin Hood to Friar Tuck.
