Walker Book Group

February 9, 2020 | 5:30 PM

Join the Walker Book Group on Sunday, February 9 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 wine. Be responsible for cleanup if using Albany UU’s kitchen or be green and bring your own dishes and flatware.

We will discuss Chances Are…, a novel by Richard RussoThis novel centers on a 2015 Martha’s Vineyard reunion of three college friends, who met there after graduation in 1970.  They examine the changes in their lives, the effects of the 1969 draft lottery, and the mystery of what happened to Jacy, the wealthy young woman they were in love with, after she disappeared on the island.  A review in the Guardian concludes that “Chances Are, a rare mix of the tense and tender, should gain Russo further literary acclaim.”

We meet on the second Sunday of each month from September through June. For future updates, subscribe to the Walker Book Group egroup list at AlbanyUU-WalkerBookGroup@egroups.churchdb.com. Contact Martha Musser for further information at mussermartha@gmail.com.
