Tuesday, May 7, 10:30am
Come join the discussion! Our selection for May is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith. This beloved American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century is a poignant and moving tale filled with compassion and cruelty, laughter and heartache, crowded with life and people and incident. The story of young, sensitive, and idealistic Francie Nolan and her bittersweet formative years in the slums of Williamsburg has enchanted and inspired millions of readers for more than sixty years. By turns overwhelming, sublime, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the daily experiences of the unforgettable Nolans are raw with honesty and tenderly threaded with family connectedness -- in a work of literary art that brilliantly captures a unique time and place as well as incredibly rich moments of universal experience.

In addition to our full discussion on May 7, we will have a "half-way" discussion on April 23.
