First, mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 21st at 7:30pm to join in as we wrap up our year. We’ll discuss the most recent book, Oh, William! written by beloved author, Elizabeth Strout. There will be plenty of time to chat about the book while also allowing for socialization and friendship. This is the month when we start to populate our reading list for next year and we would love to incorporate your suggestions. Registration is needed so we can provide you with the meeting information. Reply on our HNN book club Facebook page, or message Beth at the address below if you can attend. For your convenience, books are available in the book club section at the Holliston Library.
Sumer reading: Hopefully you will find time to relax and enjoy titles from your own wish list. If you’d like to get a head start on our September book, be sure to add Remarkably Bright Creatures, by Shelby Van Pelt to your list. Holliston Library has already placed a reserve for members and expects books to start arriving mid-August. And if you can’t wait until then, check out Hoopla, where you can instantly get the electronic or audio version anytime with your library card.
Book Club Co-chairs needed: Lastly, we are seeking 2 new members to take over as book club co-chairs for next year. This is a fun way to contribute to HNN and since it takes very little of your time it’s an ideal position for those who have busy schedules. Work as a team to help fine tune our reading list, reserve books through the library, update the book club page on Facebook, update our monthly newsletter article, and help facilitate the monthly meeting. Guidance will be available from this year’s co-chairs. Please reach out if you have interest, or questions. See the description in the vacancy section of this newsletter.
Summary of Oh, William from the Minuteman Library Network site:
“Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout explores the mysteries of marriage and the secrets we keep, as a former couple reckons with where they've come from--and what they've left behind.
…At the heart of this story is the indomitable voice of Lucy Barton, who offers a profound, lasting reflection on the very nature of existence.”
