Thursday Night Book Group

This long-standing book club has been at the store about as long as I have! We meet the fourth Thursday of every month except November and December, when we have a combined month holiday party. We read great books and have a lot of fun.

February

Since we had to cancel our January book group due to the lovely weather we decided to have a DOUBLE discussion for our February group.
We'll meet a little earlier than normal and discuss both books.

It's a challenge, but we're up for it!!

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
Thursday, February 28, 7 p.m.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail HoneymanMeet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .
The only way to survive is to open your heart.

Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
Thursday, February 28, 7 p.m.

Pachinko by Min Jin LeePACHINKO is about paying dues to a forgotten history; to the complex and fraught Japan-Korea relationship that endured well into the 90s and lingers to this day. But it doesn’t wear its heart—or historical truths—on its sleeve. What drives this novel is the magisterial force of Lee’s characterization; her ability to ground the narrative deeply and intimately in the details of daily life. Also threaded through it are questions of home, identity, nationhood and tradition—including the belief of its female protagonists that ‘a woman’s lot is to suffer.’”
