Really Good Book Discussion
Thursday, April 05, 2018, 07:00pm

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.

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.
