Prepare for a journey into a revolutionary past

WW 2019 Nostromo

Join a community of avid readers and scholars for two days of discovery and discussion inspired by one of the world’s great political novels: Joseph Conrad’s Nostromo.

It’s a tale of rebellion, idealism, and corruption. Sulaco, port city of the fictional South American state of Costaguana, is our setting. Silver mine owner Charles Gould asks Nostromo, head longshoreman and local hero, to move his silver away from Sulaco before a military invasion swallows it.  

Winter Weekend is an evening and a day of stimulating conversations around a book. It’s an adventure for the mind that builds bridges between themes, times, places, and people.
