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 April 20th meeting features Less by Andrew Sean Greer.
This novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for for being “a generous book, musical in its prose and expansive in its structure and range, about growing older and the essential nature of love.” A rare comedy to win a Pulitzer, Less tells the story of an author of middling talent, approaching 50 years old, and faced with the unpleasant prospect of attending the wedding of a former boyfriend. In mid-life crisis, Arthur Less decides to skip town by accepting all of the vague, half-baked invitations he has received over the years to literary events around the world. The result is a comedy of errors satirizing American travelers and a gentle rumination on time, love, and the bittersweet nature of lost chances.
Copies of Less will be reserved at Moffat Library between March 30th and April 20th. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com!
