One of the many wonderful pleasures of reading is that a great book can be enjoyed just about anywhere, and these days there are so many ways to get a copy of a great book. Let’s join together this month in reading the very timely selection, A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles.
Our April gathering date is scheduled for Tuesday, April 21 at 7:30pm We will be putting our heads together to explore the possibility of meeting virtually. If you happen to be tech savvy or master of collaborative options, we’d love to have you host, or consult on the process, so please reach out if you can help.
Libraries are currently closed, yet there are still several ways to read the book. Please check out the Holliston library website for instructions on using the Minuteman network to borrow digital and audio versions. You can also expand your online borrowing options by creating a Boston Public Library account. An update regarding the April meeting will be emailed to book club members as decisions are made. If you have questions and ideas, please reach the co-chairs through Facebook or email; we’d love to hear from you!
"A Gentleman in Moscow immerses us in another elegantly drawn era with the story of Count Alexander Rostov. When, in 1922, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel's doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery..."-- Provided by publisher.
