Thanks to everybody who came to enjoy the vigorous and interesting discussion of What Alice Forgot at the last meeting of the Field Notes Book Group on March 18, 2017.
Our next book, chosen by the group, is The Art of Racing in the Rain, by Garth Stein. Narrated by Enzo, an extraordinary dog who’s on the verge of death, the book looks back at Enzo’s life with his master, Denny, a mechanic and aspiring race car driver, and all the other people in Denny’s life, including Denny’s wife and their daughter, Zoe. Enzo is there when Denny meets his wife, Eve, and when Zoe is born at home. He’s there for all the great moments of Denny’s life, and also all the painful ones, always aspiring to become good enough that in his next life he will be reincarnated as a man. Be forewarned: the book is a tearjerker, though there are also funny aspects to it as well.
Come and pick up your copy of the book, which will be available at the library this week, and then join us for another entertaining discussion, complete with food and drink, here at the Field Library on April 22, 2017, from 11:00 to 12:30 at the Gallery.
CHANGE OF DATE: Entirely my fault. I’d forgotten that the Field Library will be closed on April 15 and April 16, so of course we can’t have our book group meeting at the library when the library will be closed. The new date is April 22, a week later. Sorry for the inconvenience!
