A "biography" of a character who changes gender and lives for several centuries (it's never explained), Orlando is Virginia Woolf at her most sci-fi.

It's a novel about appearances, attraction, time, and change, and it's also very queer. It was written as an over-the-top flirtation with a woman in Woolf's life, Vita Sackville-West. 

We'll read the novel (and explore the backstory with Sackville-West) over five weeks, gathering on Zoom on Saturdays at 10 am Pacific. Each session will begin with a talk by Christopher Frizzelle, followed by open discussion. Meetings will last 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on how lively the conversation gets.

If you miss any of the meetings, no problem: A recording of each one will be sent to all ticket-holders automatically.
