Saturday Book Conversations
Canton Public Library

Saturday, Jun. 30, 1:00 PM
“Saturday Book Conversations,” at Canton Public Library, reads Everybody’s Fool, by Richard Russo. Pulitzer Prize winning author Russo wrote this book using the same setting and many of the characters of his earlier book, Nobody’s Fool, which was once made into a movie starring Paul Newman. This time his focus is on the former junior-officer-turned-police-chief, Doug Raymer. In the book’s opening chapters, the Chief attends a funeral and in his mind, lays out the whole, economically depressed town of North Bath, N.Y. for the reader.  Since this is more or less a comedy, with rough humor and “wacky charm” (thewashingtonpost.com), the main character eventually has some good things happen in his life, but not before a lot of struggle with sad-sacks and villains. Visitors and new members are always welcome. Light refreshments served.
