September 26, 2023 @ 5:30 pm

Book Club: The Glass Castle

Tuesday, September 26, 5:30 pm dinner, 6:00 pm discussionCommunity Room and ZoomThis year, Book Club is meeting the 4th Tuesday of each month (except December) through April. We’ll enjoy a shared meal before discussing the book.September’s book is The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves.Books are available at the library. Other books we’ll read this winter include:

  • I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
  • Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  • Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
  • This Book is Gay by Juno Dawson
  • Beloved by Toni Morrison
