Reader's Circle - Five Tuesdays In Winter

Registration is recommended
Registration cancellations will be accepted
Please join us at 7:00 pm, on Wednesday February 15th, to discuss Five Tuesdays In Winter by Lily King.
Told in the intimate voices of unique and endearing characters of all ages, these tales explore desire and heartache, loss and discovery, moments of jolting violence, and the inexorable tug toward love at all costs. A bookseller’s unspoken love for his employee rises to the surface, a neglected teenage boy finds much-needed nurturing from an unlikely pair of college students hired to housesit, a girl’s loss of innocence at the hands of her employer’s son becomes a catalyst for strength and confidence, and a proud nonagenarian rages helplessly in his granddaughter’s hospital room. Romantic, hopeful, brutally raw, and unsparingly honest, some even slipping into the surreal, these stories are, above all, about King’s enduring subject of love.
Come discuss it all on Wednesday, February 15th at 7:00 PM.
