Really Good Book Discussion
Thursday, February 01, 2018, 07:00pm

The Springfield Free Public Library's (Really Good!) Book Discussion Group will meet on Thursday, February 1 at 7 p.m. to discuss Commonwealth: A Novel by Ann Patchett.

Patchett, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize, presents her readers with a character-driven domestic drama that spans five decades. The novel is about two families whose fates are set into motion one afternoon in the 1960s at a Christening party. Patchett paints a fully realized portrait of family life, along with all the humor, despair, sibling rivalry, tragedy and betrayal that make up that picture.

Discussions take place at 7 p.m. in the Staff Room. Refreshments are served. New members are welcome. To reserve your copy of the book call 973-376-4930 x228 or send an email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
