As part of the 2019 One Book, One Town program series, the Brewster Ladies’ Library’s Evening Book Group will be discussing Through a Ruby Window by Susan Klein.
“The various stories in the collection—recollections of her German mother; keen childhood observations about her parents’ divorce, her father’s departure, her mother’s financial difficulties; and a child’s questioning of adult hypocrisy witnessed in religious practice and bigotry—offer insight both into childhood perception and the power and urgency of memory. Moreover, the book provides details that help the reader visualize life on Martha’s Vineyard—the island’s natural characteristics as well as its annual inundation by tourists.” – Booklist.
This discussion will take place on Thursday, January 31 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
