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!
Monday Oct. 1st 7:00 pm All New People / by Anne Lamott
Nan Goodman, newly divorced and facing the reality of her father's death, returns to the Marin County town of her childhood. A session with a hypnotherapist causes Nan to recall events from her childhood, especially those relationships within her immediate family: her older brother Casey; her father, Robbie, a writer with leftist leanings; and her mother, Marie, a devoutly Christian housewife. Raised during the turbulent 1960s, Nan and Casey had a liberal upbringing and often Nanny, as she was called then, somehow felt different from the other children in the neighborhood. As the decade progresses, with its changing mores and social customs, Nan comes of age. Despite moments of emotionally destructive and puzzling actions by the grown-ups around her, Nan is able to see that her childhood, and her life in general, is balanced by the love and comfort of her family, together coping with whatever life has to offer.Books & Authors
