Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" Ada Public Library's November book discussion

The Ada Public Library invites Icon viewers to join its November book discussion. The group meets at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 6, in the library to discuss Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights."

Brief synopsis:

In the late winter months of 1801, a man named Lockwood rents a manor house called Thrushcross Grange in the isolated moor country of England. Here, he meets his dour landlord, Heathcliff, a wealthy man who lives in the ancient manor of Wuthering Heights, four miles away from the Grange.

In this wild, stormy countryside, Lockwood asks his housekeeper, Nelly Dean, to tell him the story of Heathcliff and the strange denizens of Wuthering Heights. Nelly consents, and Lockwood writes down his recollections of her tale in his diary; these written recollections form the main part of Wuthering Heights.
