The Great Beginnings Book Club meets the first and third Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm.
While our meeting room is closed, we are holding virtual meetings via Zoom. Don’t worry if meetings are too frequent for you to finish each book; we would be thrilled to see you at whatever meetings work for your schedule. Book selections are posted at least several weeks in advance to give you a chance to focus on specific selections.
Moderated by John Donaldson.
New members are always welcome!
Our May 4th meeting features Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout.
This novel is the sequel to Olive Kitteridge, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for its portrayal of the title character, who is “blunt, flawed, and fascinating.” We read it back in January to kick off our Pulitzer theme this year. Olive is an intriguingly opinionated woman, and her proclivity for getting into various situations around her community provides fertile ground for exploring a variety of topics. Now, older but just as irascible, we spend some time with Olive, again.
Copies of Olive, Again will be reserved at Moffat Library between April 13th and May 4th. You can also obtain a copy on your own at the links below. Note that some titles may not be available in every format. Please feel free to reach out to email@example.com if you are having difficulty getting a copy.
This program will be run virtually via Zoom. A link with instructions on accessing the meeting will be e-mailed to registrants the day before the program. Again, if you encounter any difficulty or have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
