Book Discussion

 

This month's selection is Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood.

“After being done out of his job by a scheming underling, a prominent theater festival director goes off-grid, teaching literacy and theater to prisoners and grieving a lost daughter. When he learns that the man who took his job will attend the next production, he sees his chance: in this Tempest, it won’t just be Prospero who gets revenge.”
(Publishers Weekly)

 

Come share a lively discussion with us. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date. No registration necessary.
