The library book group will meet at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 27 to discuss the novel Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner.
Stegner's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is the story of four generations in the life of an American family. A wheelchair-bound retired historian embarks on a monumental quest: to come to know his grandparents, now long dead. The unfolding drama of the story of the American West sets the tone for Stegner's masterpiece.This classic novel has been selected by the board of the Modern Library as one of the best hundred novels of the 20th century.
The Scandinavia Public Library chooses a book monthly (except for December) to read and discuss as a group on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 4 p.m. Selections vary widely and readers are welcome to participate as frequently as they choose.
