Everyone will have at least five minutes to speak, but no one is required to share if they prefer just to listen and enjoy.

Tuesday August 16, 2016
   1:15 PM  -  2:30 PM VINTAGE SUMMER BOOK CLUB  
    Contact: Eileen Pearce   860-627-1495   epearce@libraryconnection.info
   

Join us for the third and last meeting of the "Vintage" Summer Book Club.  Plan to bring a brown bag lunch and we will provide drinks and dessert.  "Vintage" books are not historical fiction.  They are novels written years ago that were significant at the time of publication and that still resonate with today's readers.  Copies of each book will be available for check out a month before each meeting.  

Our last vintage selection is So Big (1924) by Edna Ferber.  So Big was the winner of the 1925 Pulitzer Prize for literature and ?is widely regarded as the masterwork of celebrated author and Algonquin Round Table mainstay Edna Ferber—who also penned other classics including Show Boat, Giant, Ice Palace, Saratoga Trunk, and Cimarron.  So Big is a rollicking panorama of Chicago's high and low life at the turn of the 20th Century. Following the travails of gambler's daughter Selina Peake DeJong as she struggles to maintain her dignity, her family, and her sanity in the face of monumental challenges, this is the stunning and unforgettable “novel to read and to remember” by an author who critics of the 1920s and 1930s did not hesitate to call… the greatest American woman novelist of her day” (New York Times).  

Join us for the last meeting of this 3-part summer book discussion series.  Please register in advance (if you can't make all the meetings you are welcome to register for 1 or 2) so we can plan on enough copies of each novel.  Call Adult Services Librarian Eileen Pearce at 860-627-1495, email epearce@connecton.info, or click on the link below to register online.  Please register early so we can get books for everyone!
