The “Open Book Club” for adults will continues in the Cazenovia Public Library Community Room on at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17 and on at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 18. All are welcome.
This month, the “Evening Club” is reading “She’s Come Undone” by Wally Lamb.
In this extraordinary coming-of-age odyssey, Lamb invites readers to hitch a wild ride on a journey of love, pain, and renewal with the most heartbreakingly comical heroine to come along in years — Dolores Price.
She’s 13, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye.
Stranded in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with Mallomars, potato chips, and soda that her anxious mother supplies. When she finally blossoms into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. This time, she’s determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before she goes under.
The “Afternoon Club” is reading “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd.
This debut novel has captured the hearts of reviewers and readers alike, and tells an extraordinary story about divine female power and the transforming power of love.
Set in South Carolina in 1964, “The Secret Life of Bees” tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been fashioned around the distorted memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.
Traveling to the town that holds the secret of her mothers’ history, Lily becomes friends with an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters who introduce her to an exciting world of bees and honey, and the black Madonna who rules over their household.
Both the Afternoon Club and the Evening Club are free and open to the public. Books are available at the circulation desk and all are welcome.
