Adult Book Club

dogsgoFriday, May 19 at 10:30AM

All adults are welcome to participate in monthly book discussions. For a morning of lively discussion call 740.924.3561, email Miss Martha at msturgill@alexandria.lib.oh.us or stop by the library to join Book Club. You need not be available every month in order to participate. The choice for May is Don’t let’s go to the dogs tonight: an African childhood by Alexandra Fuller.

Alexandra Fuller remembers her African childhood with candor and sensitivity. Though it is a diary of an unruly life in an often inhospitable place, it is suffused with Fuller’s endearing ability to find laughter, even when there is little to celebrate. Fuller’s debut is unsentimental and unflinching but always captivating. In wry and sometimes hilarious prose, she stares down disaster and looks back with rage and love at the life of an extraordinary family in an extraordinary time.

If you are new and would like to join us, please enter by the meeting room door as the library is closed on Fridays.
