Join the Walker Book Group on Sunday, October 13 at 5:30 pm in Channing Hall. We will begin with a potluck supper followed by a lively book discussion. Newcomers are always welcome.
Bring a dish to share and a small contribution to cover beverages. Be responsible for cleanup if using Albany UU’s kitchen or be green and bring your own dishes and flatware.
We will discuss Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan. The novel, set in New York City, begins in 1934 with a brief encounter of the three central characters, Anna, an 11-year-old girl, her father Eddie, and an underworld figure, Dexter Styles. The narrative quickly moves to World War II when the lives of these characters intertwine. The war transforms the roles of men and women across America, as exemplified by these characters.
We meet on the second Sunday of each month from September through June. In November, we will discuss A Woman Is No Man: A Novel by Etaf Rum and in December, A Friend by Sigrid Nunez.
