About The Moviegoer:
The Moviegoer is Binx Bolling, a young New Orleans stockbroker who surveys the world with the detached gaze of a Bourbon Street dandy even as he yearns for a spiritual redemption he cannot bring himself to believe in. On the eve of his thirtieth birthday, he occupies himself dallying with his secretaries and going to movies, which provide him with the "treasurable moments" absent from his real life. But one fateful Mardi Gras, Binx embarks on a hare-brained quest that outrages his family, endangers his fragile cousin Kate, and sends him reeling through the chaos of New Orleans' French Quarter. Wry and wrenching, rich in irony and romance, The Moviegoer is a genuine American classic.
*Hart Readers is a community reading group. On first Wednesdays, from 6:30-7:30 pm, readers from the church parish and the broader community will gather at the Cathedral Book Store to discuss contemporary books and issues from a theological perspective. Discussions are facilitated by various clergy and lay teachers. We will not meet during Lent. For more information, call Kerith Lee at 404-237-7582 or email email@example.com
