Reading for pleasure shouldn’t have to be all work – join us for a fun, new book group.

We will read fairly current fiction (maybe even nonfiction) that will be entertaining and well written.

We will meet on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 PM

Copies in various formats will be available 2 weeks prior to each meeting. Refreshments will be served!

The Gathering

by Anne Enright  April 3rd 7:00pm

 

“The Gathering,” her fourth novel and a finalist for the Man Booker Prize in Britain, inhabits the restless, angry consciousness of Veronica Hegarty, one of a dozen children of a “vague” mother — a “piece of benign human meat, sitting in a room” — and a mannerly, laconic father, long since buried, whose dignity was so “undermined by his crazed rate of reproduction” that mourners sniggered at his funeral. Now 39, Veronica is mourning the recent suicide of her favorite brother, Liam, an alcoholic and a “terrible messer” who put rocks in his pockets and slipped into the sea at Brighton. At Liam’s wake in Dublin, as his siblings bicker, their mother barely registers the loss, but to Veronica it’s staggering. “I am the one who has lost something that cannot be replaced,” Veronica tells herself. Her mother “would cry, no matter what son he was. ... She has plenty more " New York Times Book Review
