The Springfield Free Public Library's (Really Good!) Book Discussion Group will meet on Thursday, April 5 at 7 p.m. to discuss Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk: A Novel by Kathleen Rooney.
85 year-old Lillian Boxfish was once the toast of New York. She was one of the most talented and successful ad women for R.H. Macy’s in the 1930s. The character is based on real-life ad woman and author Margaret Fishback. Lillian decides to take a long walk to a party as 1984 draws to a close. As she wends her way to the party, Lillian recalls the story of her life and readers are treated to a street-level tour through six decades of New York.
