November 2014 Book Group

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Cover Art of Dear Life by Alice MunroeLibrarian Sue will lead the book discussion on Dear Life by Alice Munro. The publisher describes the book as "A brilliant new collection of stories from one of the most acclaimed and beloved writers of our time. With her peerless ability to give us the essence of a life in often brief but spacious and timeless stories, Alice Munro illumines the moment a life is shaped--the moment a dream, or sex, or perhaps a simple twist of fate turns a person out of his or her accustomed path and into another way of being. Suffused with Munro's clarity of vision and her unparalleled gift for storytelling, these stories (set in the world Munro has made her own: the countryside and towns around Lake Huron) about departures and beginnings, accidents, dangers, and homecomings both virtual and real, paint a vivid and lasting portrait of how strange, dangerous, and extraordinary the ordinary life can be."

The Scandinavia Public Library chooses a book monthly (except for December) to read and discuss as a group on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 4 p.m. Selections vary widely and readers are welcome to participate as frequently as they choose.
