Tuesday Morning Book Club With Lunch To Follow
The Peabody Institute Library Danvers invites everyone to the Tuesday Morning Book group on June 21, 10:30 to 12. The book for this meeting will be Sarah Blake’s The Post Mistress. Books, book reviews and information about the author will be available at the reference desk at the library.
The Post Mistress weaves together the stories of three very different women in Blake’s debut novel. Readers shift back and forth between small town America and war-torn Europe in 1940. Single, 40-year-old postmistress Iris James and young newlywed Emma Trask are both new arrivals to Franklin, Mass., on Cape Cod. While Iris and Emma go about their daily lives, they follow American reporter Frankie Bard on the radio as she delivers powerful and personal accounts from the London Blitz and elsewhere in Europe. Blake captures two different worlds—a naïve nation in denial and, across the ocean, a continent wracked with terror—with a deft sense of character and plot, and a perfect willingness to take on big, complex questions, such as the merits of truth and truth-telling in wartime.
The meeting will be on Tuesday the 21st of June, and as it is their last meeting for the summer, they will have a lunch at the Danversport Yacht Club following their meeting. All are welcome at both the book discussion and the lunch. If you have any questions please contact the Peabody Institute Library Danvers at 978-774-0554 or email@example.com
