March Book Discussion – The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams
Wednesday, March 29, 1:30 p.m. in the Conference Room

Taking place in the early 20th century at the height of the women’s suffrage movement in England, this novel focuses on the contributions of women overlooked in the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary by men.  Esmé, whose mother died giving her birth, is brought up by her father, and spends her childhood under the table in the Scriptorium where James Murray and his team of lexicographers, including her father, are compiling the work. Over time she discovers that words in common use, particularly those used by and about women, are not included so she begins to collect other words relating to women’s and common people’s experiences.
