Humboldt Reads!

An enjoyable hour with an informal dinner and interactive book discussion!

Please join us for our March Humboldt Reads!  It will be held on Thursday, March 21st, 5:30 pm, at Pasquale’s (dining room) in Humboldt, IA.  Attendees pay for their meal choice, but no pre-registration or monthly commitment is required.

This month’s selection is Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney.

“She took the 1930’s New York by storm, working her way up writing copy for R.H. Macy’s to become the highest-paid advertising woman in the country.  It was a job that she says, “in some ways saved my life, and in other ways ruined it.”

Now it’s the last night of 1984 and Lillian, eight-five years old but just as sharp and savvy as ever, is on her way to a party.  It’s chilly enough out for a mink coat, and Manhattan is grittier now – her son keeps warning her about a subway vigilante on the prowl – but Lillian has never been one to scare easily.  On a walk that takes her more than ten miles around the city, she meets bartenders, bodega clerks, security guards, criminals, children, parents and parents-to-be, while reviewing a life of excitement and adversity, passion and heartbreak, illuminating all the ways New York has changed – and has not.

Lillian figures she might as well take her time.  For now, after all, the night is still young.”

Notes:  Please return your copy by its due date so others may enjoy this month’s selection.  Attend Humboldt Reads! and you are welcome to a copy of the book by stopping in the library and requesting a copy after joining our discussion at Pasquales.
