Monday, May 1, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
The book club will discuss All He Ever Wanted by Anita Shreve:"A marriage is always two intersecting stories." This realization comes perhaps too late to the husband of Etna Bliss-a man whose obsession with his young wife begins at the moment of their first meeting, as he helps Etna and her companions escape from a fire in a hotel restaurant, and culminates in a marriage doomed by secrets and betrayal. Written with the intelligence and grace that are the hallmarks of Anita Shreve's bestselling novels, this gripping tale of desire, jealousy, and loss is peopled by unforgettable characters as real as the emotions that bring them together.
This is a no-commitment book club, attend as many or as few meetings as you like! The group meets on the first Monday of every month.
Extra copies of the book coming up for discussion are available at the Information Desk for checkout.
