In 1923 England, ailing novelist Virginia Woolf is starting to write her novel, “Mrs. Dalloway,” under the care of doctors and family. In 1951 Los Angeles, Laura Brown is a pregnant housewife who is planning for her husband’s birthday, but is preoccupied with reading Woolf’s novel. In 2001 New York, Clarrisa Vaughn is planning an award party for her friend, an author dying of AIDS. Taking place over one day, all three stories are interconnected with the novel “Mrs. Dalloway,” as one is writing it, one is reading it, and one is living it.

Deane Tucker, Professor of Humanities at Chadron State College will facilitate the discussion in this Social Issues Series which will include a light meal. The film is rated PG-13 and is 144 minutes.
