Join reviewer Pat Klewer as she discusses Amor Towles’ recent novel A Gentleman in Moscow for Bookmarks at the Museum on Thursday, June 21, at 2 p.m. at the Westchester Township History Museum.

In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, a man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. A Gentleman in Moscow will soon be adapted for television by Kenneth Branagh.

Bookmarks takes place on the third Thursday of the month at the museum, and on the third Friday of the month at Michigan City Public Library, 100 E. 4th St., Michigan City.

It is not necessary to read the book before attending. Books are available at both Thomas and Hageman branches. Refreshments will be served.

The Westchester Township History Museum, a free cultural and educational service of Westchester Public Library, is housed in the Brown Mansion at 700 W. Porter Ave., Chesterton. The museum is open to the public Wednesday-Sunday from 1-5 pm, or by appointment. For more information call the museum at 983-9715.
