misc_none 12:30 PM  -  1:30 PM Lunchtime Book Discussion: Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Cathy Williams   203-736-1482   
   

The setting is New Breman, Minnesota during the summer of 1961.  While it is a time of innocence and hope for the country, for 13 year old Frank Drum it is a grim summer in which death visits frequently and assumes many forms.  Told from Frank’s perspective, 40 years after that fateful summer, this is the moving account of a boy standing at the door of manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him.  Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.”  Dessert and beverages will be provided. 

Registration is requested.
