Everett Community College instructor Roger Berger leads the discussion at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the library's main auditorium.
Conrad, most known for "Heart of Darkness" and "Lord Jim," departs from his works gleaned from years traveling the world in the French and British navies, creating in "The Secret Agent" a political thriller set in London at the beginning of the 20th century that resonates today.
An open discussion will follow Berger's presentation. No reservation is required for this free event. The library is at 2702 Hoyt Ave., Everett.
Call 425-257-8000 for information about the series. Next up in the Books You've Always Meant to Read series is a discussion of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter" on May 23.
