Main Library – Explore thought-provoking fiction from around the globe. Our Read Around the World book club meets once a month to discuss titles from foreign locales. All titles are available from Maplewood Library or through the BCCLS consortium. No registration needed.
This month’s book is My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante. This first in a series follows two friends in Naples from their first fateful meeting as ten-year-old girls through their school years and adolescence. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighborhood, a city, and a country as it is transformed in ways that also transform her protagonists.
