From January-October, our Page Turners general book group meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30pm at the library. The next day, Wednesday at 1pm, we host a session at the Stoughton Area Senior Center. Discussion titles are available near the Information Desk on the top floor. If you have questions or would like to be added to our email reminder list for this group, please call 608-873-6281 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
January 25-26: All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood. A beautiful and provocative love story between two unlikely people and the hard-won relationship that elevates them above the Midwestern meth lab backdrop of their lives. The Tuesday evening session will meet at the library in person. However, the Jan. 26, 1pm session will meet via Zoom instead of in person at the Senior Center, if you prefer not to meet in person. Link to come.
Feb 22-23: Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys. Inspired by, but independent of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, the author tells the story of the childhood and marriage of the first Mrs. Rochester, the West Indian Creole heiress who went insane in a haunting, intense, and tragic tropical world. Bonus: read Jane Eyre or watch a film version for comparison.
Mar 22-23: A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. A beautifully transporting historical fiction novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel.
Apr 26-27: Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys. From the author of Between Shades of Gray comes a gripping, extraordinary portrait of love, silence, and secrets under a Spanish dictatorship.
May 24-25: Dancing at the Pity Party: A Dead Mom Graphic Memoir by Tyler Feder. Part poignant cancer memoir and part humorous reflection on a motherless life, this debut graphic novel is extraordinarily comforting and engaging.
Jun 28-29: Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of an American Family by Robert Kolker. The heartrending nonfiction account of a midcentury American family with twelve children, six of them diagnosed with schizophrenia, that became science's great hope in the quest to understand the disease.
