"Hilarious and true-to-life, witty, compassionate, and impossible to put down, Straight Man follows Hank Devereaux through one very bad week in this novel from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo." From Amazon.com
On Thursday, May 4, the WMCC Lunchtime Book Group will meet at noon in the Library to discuss Straight Man by Richard Russo.
Books and audios for this discussion can be checked out of the WMCC library.
It might not feel like it in the North Country, but Spring has arrived. Soon, we'll see flowers in bloom and green grass.
To get a jump on your gardening, the library has a great selection of books for you to help out with all sorts of questions: soil acidity, bulbs, planting tips, garden design, perennials vs. annuals, and many more.
Ernest Hemingway moved around the world a lot; in the 1920s, he lived in Paris, with his first wife. A Moveable Feastis his account of that time, when he was a struggling journalist and writer.
In the 1964, after his death, his fourth wife reworked the unpublished manuscript and had it published.
And in 2010, Hemingway's grandson (by Hemingway's second wife), Sean, reedited the book, including sections that apparently were left out of the original. A Moveable Feast, the Restored Edition is the result of research and includes personal family connections.
Join the WMCC Lunchtime Book Group on Thursday, March 23, at noon in the Library. Bring your lunch!
