The MIT Libraries invites you to join the discussion about J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy, chosen in partnership with Alpha Chi Omega.
Often characterized as “a big novel about a small town,” The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults. Told against the backdrop of a seemingly perfect English town, it’s a tale of marriage, social class, and political intrigue that shines a light on social issues such as racism, poverty, domestic violence, and addiction. All of this unfolds with Rowling’s characteristic eye for characters and story-telling flair, with a touch of dark humor.
Location: W31-110 (duPont Entrance)
