Everett library hosts lectures on opera, ‘The Big Money’ novel

Here's a chance to get your culture on.
The Everett Public Library is holding two presentations, one on opera and another on a classic novel.
Seattle Opera's Robert McClung will talk about opera in general and will also discuss two operas coming up at Seattle Opera: Francis Poulenc's "La Voix Humaine" and Giacomo Puccini's "Suor Angelica." Seattle Opera will be performing those operas from May 4 to 18.
McClung's talk is at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the main library.
The second program is by professor Roger Berger, at 7 p.m. April 30, who will lead a discussion on John Dos Passos' novel, "The Big Money," as part of the library's Books You've Always Meant to Read series.
The book is set in the Roaring '20s and is considered experimental because the author punctuates the narrative using newspaper headlines, stream of consciousness segments, scraps of contemporary oratory and brief biographical sketches.
Berger will talk about these methods of narrative and the similarities between the time of "The Big Money" and today, according to a press release.
Both programs are free and at the Everett Library's main auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Ave., Everett. To check the library's event calendar online go to www.epls.org/calendar. For more information call 425-257-8000.
