Library Book Group - January 2020

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty SmithJanuary Meeting: 1/29/20 at 7pm

We will be voting for our 2020 fiction titles at the January 29 meeting!

The Library Book Group meets at 7:00pm on the last Wednesday of each month, in the library gathering room. Book titles are chosen by the members and copies are available at the library. The group alternates between fiction and non-fiction titles. Copies of each month’s book are available at the library. Please call the library directly at 508-529-6272 to request a copy of this month's title.

This month we will be reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith

From the moment she entered the world, Francie Nolan needed to be made of stern stuff, for the often harsh life of Williamsburg demanded fortitude, precocity, and strength of spirit. Often scorned by neighbors for her family’s erratic and eccentric behavior—such as her father Johnny’s taste for alcohol and Aunt Sissy’s habit of marrying serially without the formality of divorce—no one, least of all Francie, could say that the Nolans’ life lacked drama. By turns overwhelming, sublime, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the Nolans’ daily experiences are tenderly threaded with family connectedness and raw with honesty.
