Read Around the World Book Group
Main Library – Wednesday, February 10 – 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm – This month’s selection is The White Woman on the Green Bicycle by Monique Roffey. Our new book group meets once a month to discuss titles from foreign locales. All titles are available from Maplewood Library or through the BCCLS consortium.
A newly independent Trinidad offers a rich backdrop for Roffey’s evocative exploration of life in a tropical paradise rife with conflict. Sabine and George Harwood come to Trinidad from England with vastly different expectations: for Sabine, it is a blessedly limited three-year stint undertaken purely to advance her husband’s career; for George it is an open-ended opportunity to break out of his dreary British life.
