DATE: January 12 4:00 PM
LOCATION: PROGRAMS STUDIO
Ever wish you were in a book club, and wonder if you might be if you weren’t spending so much time watching addictive TV shows? Welcome to the best of both worlds. The next Community Library TV Discussion Group will meet weekly, on Wednesdays from January 12th through January 26th from 4:00 to 5:30, giving TV obsessives and skeptics a place to dissect season one of HBO’s buzzed-about limited series: “The White Lotus.”
The provocative and highly discussable 6-episode show about class, colonialism, ambition and lust follows a group of rich white guests on vacation at a Hawaiian luxury resort. Oblivious, awful and all too recognizably human, the tourists circle one another and the resort’s employees in a cluelessly vicious dance. Comedy, tragedy and rude awakenings ensue. Group participants will share their reactions and insights, analyzing “The White Lotus” in the way a book group critiques a novel.
Ketchum resident Mimi Avins, who covered pop culture in her years as a staff writer for The Los Angeles Times, will lead the discussion. Each session will explore two episodes.
The group works best if all members watch two episodes a week, so binge watching the entire season ahead of time is discouraged. The series is available on HBO or can also be purchased for streaming from Amazon.
Attendance is free but advanced registration is requested. Proof of vaccination is required. To sign up and receive the viewing schedule please, contact Martha Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-806-2621.
