January 2022 - Five Tuesdays in Winter
For January's meeting, we are reading Five Tuesdays in Winter by Lily King. It's a collection of short stories, which I thought would be perfect to read during the holidays when you don't always get enough time - or have the attention span - to read a full novel.
When: Tuesday, January 4, 2022
Time: 6:00 pm
Book: Five Tuesdays in Winter by Lily King
Lily King, one of the most "brilliant" (New York Times Book Review), "wildly talented" (Chicago Tribune), and treasured authors of contemporary fiction, returns after her recent bestselling novels with Five Tuesdays in Winter, her first book of short fiction.
Told in the intimate voices of complex, endearing characters, Five Tuesdays in Winter intriguingly subverts expectations as it explores desire, loss, jolting violence, and the inexorable tug toward love at all costs. A reclusive bookseller begins to feel the discomfort of love again. Two college roommates have a devastating middle-aged reunion. A proud old man rages powerlessly in his granddaughter's hospital room. A writer receives a visit from all the men who have tried to suppress her voice.
Romantic, hopeful, brutally raw, and unsparingly honest, this wide-ranging collection of ten selected stories by one of our most accomplished chroniclers of the human heart is an exciting addition to Lily King's oeuvre of acclaimed fiction.
If you can’t make a book club meeting that’s fine. There’s always next month!

I hope everyone stays well and heathy until our next meeting.
