Maplewood Library’s new book group meets monthly to discuss provocative and often controversial titles that probe the questions of who we are and how we see each other.  Convener: Alice Crozier, Professor of English Emerita, Rutgers University, New Brunswick.

My AntoniaIn My Antonia, a successful New York lawyer tells the story of the one woman who most influenced his inner life and stirred his imagination. Antoina has the freshness and vitality of the new soil from which she springs, the vigor of the great praries on which her vivid and enthralling personal drama unfolds.  Copies of the book available from BCCLS.
