lib_book_bunch1 11:00 AM  -  12:00 PM Adult Book Discussion: My Brilliant Friend OFFSITE Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Information Services   847-677-5277 x230   infoservices@lincolnwoodlibrary.org
   

This book discussion at the Lincolnwood Community Center features My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante:

In a poor, midcentury Italian neighborhood, two girls, Elena and Lila, exhibit remarkable intelligence early in school, at a time when money is scarce and education a privilege, especially for girls. Only Elena is allowed to continue in school, and she devotes herself to her studies, while Lila redirects her own talent toward her family’s business. The girls use each other, sometimes as crutches, sometimes as inspiration, but as they approach adolescence, their friendship is challenged by their changing bodies and attitudes toward the world. Elena increasingly turns toward education as a means of escaping, while Lila looks to her burgeoning beauty as a means of altering the violence and bitterness that threaten their neighborhood. The first book in a prospective trilogy, My Brilliant Friend is a compelling and moving coming-of-age story set in an impoverished neighborhood struggling to come into its own in a rapidly shrinking world. Celebrated Italian author Ferrante’s unflinching and insightful prose, which was rancorous in her novel Days of Abandonment (2010), is captivating and hopeful here and will have readers eagerly awaiting the next installment. If comparison is to be found, it may be in Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants (2006) or fellow Italian Silvia Avallone’s Swimming to Elba (2012).

This discussion at LINCOLNWOOD PUBLIC LIBRARY features Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell:

Sara Vowell’s acerbic wit comes through loud and clear in this humorous and insightful portrait of the famed Frenchman and the impact he had on our young country. She also emphasizes his close relationship with some of the instrumental Americans of the time, including George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson. Vowell finds plenty of opportunities to relate the struggles of the Revolutionary period to American politics today. Be prepared for history to come to life through the author’s irreverant banter as she writes over 200 pages without any chapter breaks!
