The Georgetown Village Health Care Committee hosts a phone conversation on the first Monday of every month. Join us as GV Board Members and Health Care Committee Members Dr. Frederick Rickles, Dr. Resha Putzrath, and Sarah Barnett discuss your concerns and other health care information.

“The Noise of Time” 

by Julian Barnes 

A compact masterpiece dedicated to the Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich: Julian Barnes’s first novel since his best-selling, Man Booker Prize–winning The Sense of an Ending.  Barnes elegantly guides us through the trajectory of Shostakovitch’s career, at the same time illuminating the tumultuous evolution of the Soviet Union. The result is both a stunning portrait of a relentlessly fascinating man and a brilliant exploration of the meaning of art and its place in society.
