Join us for a discussion of the classic Daisy Miller by Henry James.  Copies on hold at the library for book club members.  New members are always welcome.  Feel free to bring your lunch and perhaps a snack to share.  
 
Summary from the library catalog:
American teenager Daisy Miller was on a holiday--and Europe might never recover. From Switzerland to Rome, she caused scandals everywhere: because Daisy Miller did "whatever" she wanted, with "whomever" she wanted, "whenever "she chose. And she truly didn't care what society thought. But Winterbourne, a dignified, proper, upper-crust young man, was utterly fascinated by her. To the horror of his relatives and friends, Winterbourne helplessly followed Daisy across a continent. Even though Daisy was too much woman for Winterbourne to ever understand... And even though Daisy Miller might be a danger to herself.
