November Book Club

November 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Monday, November 13
7:00pm – 9:00pm
Silver Diner

Arlington, VA 22201

This month, we will meet and discuss My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout.

“Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation…Gentle gossip about people from Lucy’s childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy’s life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable.” – Amazon review

At this book club meeting, we will also be collecting books for Turning the Page, a local organization that supports bringing DC public schools, families and communities together to support children’s education.

Gently used books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records for all ages (kids through adults) are greatly appreciated. Please bring any donations you might have to this meeting.

Please email Simay and Jess at uvabookclub@dchoos.org for more information.
