Event: Afternoon Book Discussion

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing Sing Them Home by Stephanie Kallos.

From Publisher's Weekly: /*Starred Review*/ The Jones family would seem to have no luck. Aneira Hope Jones, already terminally ill, was swept away by a tornado in 1978. Now her husband has been felled by lightning, and his longtime mistress, Viney-best friend to his wife and virtually the stepmother of his three children-must rally alientated, overweight art scholar Larken; sex-obsessed Gaelen, a famed weatherman mostly because of his family history; and their slightly nutty little sister, Bonnie. The Jones siblings have had far from perfect lives. But they're also rooted in the warm and sensible little town of Emlyn, NE, proud of its Welsh heritage, and this fresh, invigorating novel fingers carefully through their pain. Kallos (Broken for You) doesn't rip her characters apart, just tenderly shows us their failings as they stumble, in a realistic and satisfying manner, toward better selves. Highly recommended. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 8/08.]—Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal --Barbara Hoffert (Reviewed September 1, 2008) (Library Journal, vol 133, issue 14, p118)Sing them home

All are invited to join the discussion. This book group usually meets on the last Thursday of each month at 4:00. Copies of the book are available, in advance, at the library.
