Book Club


 

Book Club will meet on November 17 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. We will discuss A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. Here’s a review of the book by Kate Kellaway, a feature writer for The Observer, a British newspaper: "Breathing Lessons was the name of Anne Tyler’s 11th novel – but she has never needed to be taught how to give her characters life. The extraordinary thing about all her writing is the extent to which she makes one believe every word, deed and breath. A Spool of Blue Thread, her 20th, is no exception. What is most remarkable about it is the extent to which Tyler is able to relax into an ordinary, homely minor key while keeping one as absorbed as if it were one’s own family she were describing, and as if what happened to them were necessary reading. The book is no less eventful than ordinary life — and that turns out to be more than enough."
