Adult Book Discussion Group (Horizon Center)

  • The Horizon Center / Shelby Senior Services 1504 S Harrison St Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

Join us for the library's book discussion group at the Horizon Center!

This discussion group meets on the fourth Thursday of most months. At this meeting, we will be discussing THE SHIPPING NEWS by Annie Proulx. Books are available by the library's main circulation desk.

When Quoyle’s two-timing wife meets her just deserts, he retreats with his two daughters to his ancestral home on the starkly beautiful Newfoundland coast, where a rich cast of local characters and family members all play a part in Quoyle’s struggle to reclaim his life. As Quoyle confronts his private demons—and the unpredictable forces of nature and society—he begins to see the possibility of love without pain or misery. A vigorous, darkly comic, and at times magical portrait of the contemporary North American family, The Shipping News shows why Annie Proulx is recognized as one of the most gifted and original writers in America today...

 

Pam Weakley, Outreach Department Head, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 ext. 239 or pweakley@sscpl.lib.in.us.
