Cos Cob Library – Thursday Evening Book Group “Housekeeping” by Marilynne Robinson

June 6 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join our always interesting evening book club led by facilitator, Judy Berg, as the group discusses popular fiction and non-fiction.

This month’s book is Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson.

“A modern classic, Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, the eccentric and remote sister of their dead mother. The family house is in the small town of Fingerbone on a glacial lake in the Far West, the same lake where their grandfather died in a spectacular train wreck and their mother drove off a cliff to her death. It is a town chastened by an outsized landscape and extravagant weather, and chastened again by an awareness that the whole of human history had occurred elsewhere. Ruth and Lucille’s struggle toward adulthood beautifully illuminates the price of loss and survival, and the dangerous and deep undertow of transcience.”
