Read Around the World: Australia
Main Library – Wednesday, May 9 @pm. This month’s title is The Strays: a Novel by Emily Bitto. The Strays is a hauntingly powerful story about the fierce friendship between three sisters and their friend as they grow up on the outskirts of their parents’ wild and bohemian artistic lives. With elegance and vibrancy, it evokes the intense bonds of girlhood friendships, the volatile undercurrents of a damaged family, and the yearning felt by an outsider looking in.
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.
