Main Library – Wednesday, Nov 8 @ 7 pm 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. 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.
