Chapter One Book Club @ Pearl

Join us for July's Chapter One Book Club where we will discuss The Widower's Tale by Julia Glass:

Seventy-year-old Percy Darling is settling happily into retirement: reading novels, watching old movies, and swimming naked in his pond. But his routines are disrupted when he is persuaded to let a locally beloved preschool take over his barn. As Percy sees his rural refuge overrun by children, parents, and teachers, he must reexamine the solitary life he has made in the three decades since the sudden death of his wife. With equal parts affection and humor, Julia Glass spins a captivating tale about a man who can no longer remain aloof from his community, his two grown daughters, or—to his great shock—the precarious joy of falling in love.

The club will meet Thursday, July 19 @ 6 p.m. at the Pearl Public Library. We will have door prizes and refreshments! We hope to see you there!
