As we come upon the one-year anniversary of the Covid lockdowns, many of us are looking forward to a time with less social distancing and more of the things we have missed during the pandemic, especially seeing our loved ones in person and connecting to new places. What books best capture these longed-for experiences that we hope will be coming in the times ahead? This presentation takes book lovers on a tour of four masterpieces that speak to our need for adventure, travel, and reconnecting with the wider world after this long year of pandemic: Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun also Rises, Karen Blixen’s Out of Africa, E. M. Forster’s Room with a View, and Jack Kerouac’s On the Road.
