Virtual Book Club – November 2022
November 16, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
For this month, Barbara McKay’s Book Club will read the unforgettable mother-daughter story, “My Name is Lucy Barton” by Elizabeth Strout.
Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn’t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of her life: her impoverished childhood in Amgash, Illinois, her escape to New York and her desire to become a writer, her faltering marriage, her love for her two daughters.
Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant and deeply human. In this book, one of America’s finest writers shows how a simple hospital visit illuminates the most tender relationship of all-the one between mother and daughter.
The Southbury Library will hold copies of this novel for the AE Book Club.
