Each year the Council devotes a weekend to a single long work of fiction. We usually schedule the Long Novel Weekend to occur in the late summer at Vallombrosa Retreat Center in Menlo Park. In 2014, the event will take place at Vallombrosa on September 13-14.
This year we will discuss The Man Without Qualities, Volume 1, by Robert Musil.

Long novel weekends in the recent past have featured discussions of Moby Dick; David Copperfield; Look Homeward, Angel; The Magic Mountain; Vanity Fair; The Cairo Trilogy; The Sound and the Fury; Sons and Lovers; Anna Karenina; Parade's End; and Crime and Punishment.
