SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Nancy’s Book Group, led by Nancy Zachary, will discuss “An Officer and a Spy” by Robert Harris at the Scarsdale Public Library on Wednesday, July 15 at 1 p.m., with an evening session at 7:30 p.m.
The book recounts the story of the infamous Dreyfus affair as a dark, hard-edged novel of conspiracy and espionage. Alfred Dreyfus, a young, Jewish officer in the French Army, was convicted in 1895 of treason and imprisoned on Devil’s Island in a conspiracy fraught with anti-Semitism. The novel focuses on a high ranking French officer who slowly uncovers the conspiracy that wrongly convicted Dreyfus.
Registration is required at the library’s main desk or by calling 722-1300.
