We will meet up, catch up, and discuss this month’s book, The Dutch House, by Ann Patchett. Please BYO beverage and snacks, and join us on Zoom! Registration will be required in order to receive the meeting link.
At our initial meeting, we will populate a list of future reads, so please bring your book ideas from your own wish list, or perhaps titles others’ have recommended. We would also like to fine-tune a regular meeting day, as Tuesdays present a conflict for some. So let’s see if another day of the week will work. Co-chairs Cindy and Sue welcome your ideas and are happy to answer any questions returning or new members may have. Reach us at the emails below.
Multiple copies of the book have been requested for reservation at the Holliston library and, hopefully, they will be able to obtain some for us. You can also reserve directly from your own Minuteman library account online or using one of their apps. Check out hollistonlibrary.org for instructions on using the Minuteman network to place book reservations and to borrow digital and audio versions. While there, find instructions for expanding your online borrowing options by creating a Boston Public Library account.
"At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves. Cyril's son Danny and his older sister Maeve are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another.”
