AntrimBook clubto discuss‘The Moviegoer’

The Antrim Eclectic Book Club will hold a low-key, informal discussion of “The Moviegoer,” by Walker Percy, on March 16 from 11 a.m. to noon at the Antrim Presbyterian Church.

The author’s debut novel, first published in 1961, tells the story of Binx Bolling, a young stockbroker in postwar New Orleans. The decline of tradition in the southern United States, the problems of his family and his traumatic experiences in the Korean War have left him alienated. He daydreams constantly, has trouble engaging in lasting relationships and finds more meaning and immediacy in movies and books than in his own routine life.
