Book Club: Love and Fury
Thursday, August 10, 6:00 pm
Community Room and Zoom
Book Club will discuss Love and Fury: A Novel of Mary Wollstonecraft by Samantha Silva. This beautifully written book interweaves the story of midwife Parthenia Blenkinsop fighting for the life of Mary Wollstonecraft and her newborn daughter, and Wollstonecraft herself recounting the life she dared to live amidst the impossible constraints and prejudices of the late 18th century, rejecting the tyranny of men and marriage, risking everything to demand equality for herself and all women. Samantha Silva delivers an ode to the dazzling life of Mary Wollstonecraft, one of the world’s most influential thinkers and mother of the famous novelist Mary Shelley. But at its heart, Love and Fury is a story about the power of a woman reclaiming her own narrative to pass on to her daughter, and all daughters, for generations to come.
