BANNED BOOK CLUB, Doyle’s Public House: King’s Books’ unsuitable book club reads books that have been banned or challenged. This month’s book is Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov who is, put simply, a genius of words and a master of storytelling. This most (in)famous masterpiece continues to be banned in several countries and schools across the nation. Known more for its taboo content than its artful prose, it remains a much-debated work. Lolita details the confessions of Humbert Humbert, a handsome and diseased scholar, hopeless prey to the corrupt seduction of nymphism. In short, he is a pedophile. After falling desperately in love with his neighbor’s 12-year-old daughter, the spry and irresistible image of youth, he marries her mother to be closer to her. When the opportunity arises, he takes Dolores “Lolita” Haze with him across the country, holding her captive in the name of love. Discuss. 7 p.m., 208 St Helens Ave., Tacoma
