New participants are warmly welcomed at all HNC Book Club gatherings. Please come join us!
- March 19, 7:30 pm Book Club will meet at Pamela’s house for a lively discussion of An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. Thank you Pamela for the great suggestion and for hosting this month!
Due to the popularity of this title, we were not able to place a group hold for Book Club members. However, individual copies of An American Marriage are readily obtained through the Minuteman Library Network book request system.
We would love to have some new host locations for the April, May and June meetings. If you are interested, please let us know. Members are reminded that Book Club has its own Facebook page where you can stay up to date with current happenings. Any questions? Reach us through Facebook or at the emails listed below.
About our March selection:
Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy's time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward--with hope and pain--into the future.
