FOL Book Club
The Friends book group meets the second Tuesday of the month, September through June. All are invited to join the discussion.
This month’s selection: “My Brilliant Friend” by Elena Ferrante. A rich, intense, and generous-hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Ferrante’s, inimitable. A meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship. The story begins in the 1950s, in a poor but vibrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples.  Growing up on these tough streets the two girls learn to rely on each other ahead of anyone or anything else. As they grow, as their paths repeatedly diverge and converge. January 9, 5-6 p.m.
