Written over 90 years ago, Orlando, Virginia Woolf’s satiric romp featuring gender fluidity, sexuality, and class dynamics, remains as relevant as ever. The book seamlessly weaves comic, tragic, historical, and political elements together to create a fictional biography that continues to challenge and engage readers today, even inspiring film, theatrical, and poetic adaptations.

Led by the Virginia Woolf Society’s Sarah M. Hall, this guided reading group will discuss Woolf’s masterpiece, exploring its approaches to issues of sex and gender in ways that were far ahead of its time. The group is limited to 15 people, and participants are encouraged to read the novel beforehand.
