Our fiction book club meets the 4th Thursday of each month at 5:30. The group reads a variety of works of fiction chosen periodically by the group.
The October selection is The Beggar Maid by Alice Munro.
"In this exhilarating series of interweaving stories, Alice Munro re-creates the evolving bond -- one that is both constricting and empowering -- between two women in the coupe of almost forty years. One is Flo, practical, suspicious of other people's airs, at times dismayingly vulgar. The other is Rose, Flo's stepdaughter, a clumsy, shy girl who somehow-in spite of Flo's ridicule and ghastly warnings -- leaves the small town she grew up in to achieve her own equivocal success in the larger world."
