Join a Book Discussion in 2021!

Thursday May 20th at 7:00 pm. The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
Discussion led by Ileane Kaczynski
The Woman in the Window is a seductive and unpredictable novel, like the Hitchcock movies to hich author A.J. Finn pays homage. Finn's protagonist Anna Fox is a child psychologist who lives alone in a New York suburb with a case of agoraphobia so debilitating she hasn't left the house in months. To occupy her time Anna watches film noir classics from her vast collection, interacts with people online, and sometimes spies on her neighbors. It's all very innocuous until she sees a horrible crime take place in the house across the park, recently inhabited by a new family. Call the police and report it, right? Things are a little more complicated for Anna—exacerbated by her routine consumption of prescription drugs with a lot of wine. Author A.J. Finn throws curve balls where you least expect them.

Thursday June 17th at 7:00 pm. Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity and Love, by Dani Shapiro
Discussion led by Toby Zabinski.
Inheritance is a book about secrets—secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman's urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in—a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover.
