Booked for Lunch Virtual Book Discussion!
Monday, October 26 at noon. Please register via Zoom.
As a patron of the library we know you love books. Do you like to talk about them, too?
If so, why not join Robin Brz. on Monday, October 26 at noon on Zoom for Booked for Lunch?
The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and everyone has a chance to participate as much (or as little) as you like.
The October selection is Redhead by the Side of the Road by Anne Tyler.
"Micah Mortimer is a creature of habit. A self-employed tech expert, superintendent of his Baltimore apartment building, cautious to a fault behind the steering wheel, he seems content leading a steady, circumscribed life. But one day his routines are blown apart when his woman friend (he refuses to call anyone in her late thirties a "girlfriend") tells him she's facing eviction, and a teenager shows up at Micah's door claiming to be his son. These surprises, and the ways they throw Micah's meticulously organized life off-kilter, risk changing him forever. An intimate look into the heart and mind of a man who finds those around him just out of reach, and a funny, joyful, deeply compassionate story about seeing the world through new eyes, Redhead by the Side of the Road is a triumph, filled with Anne Tyler's signature wit and gimlet-eyed observation." – from the publisher’s website
