This book discussion will be help on Thursday, December 15th, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.
This casual book discussion is open to all. Stop by Riverton Library any time before the event to check out your copy of the book. This month’s selection is Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout.
“At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town of Crosby, Maine, and in the world at large, but she doesn’t always recognize the changes in those around her: a lounge musician haunted by a past romance; a former student who has lost the will to live; Olive’s own adult child, who feels tyrannized by her irrational sensitivities; and her husband, Henry, who finds his loyalty to his marriage both a blessing and a curse. Olive Kitteridge offers profound insights into the human condition–its conflicts, its tragedies and joys, and the endurance it requires.”
