Andover Libraries Book Club October 2019

Wednesday, October 31

By Janet Moore

The next meeting is on Wednesday, October 23, at 7 pm at the Bachelder Library “on the corner”  of Route 11 and Chase Hill Road in East Andover. 

Winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, “The Overstory” by Richard Powers, is about trees and people’s relationships with them. What’s that old English teacher question: “What’s the story about?” Here’s what Wikipedia has to say: “The novel is about nine Americans whose unique life experiences with trees bring them together to address the destruction of the forest.” For more detail, refer to the article, but I’ve gotta’ tell you, this looks like one fascinating, heartbreaking, and slightly uplifting read. 

Come join us on the 23rd at the Bachelder Library in East Andover.
