Contemporary Book Discussion Group
Meets the third Monday of the month at 7:00PM. This self-directed group is sponsored by the Friends of the Canton Public Library. No pre-registration is required.
Best Friends (Martha Moody): From their first meeting at Oberlin College in 1973, the friendship of two very different women - one from a working-class, Protestant family in Ohio and the other from a wealthy, Jewish family in L.A. - spans two decades and endures family and career demands.
Jitterbug Perfume (Tom Robbins): This philosophical epic, with a large cast of characters, addresses the fervent desire of the human race to overcome the tyranny of aging and physical death.
Cannery Row (John Steinbeck): Vividly depicts the colorful, sometimes disreputable, inhabitants of a run-down area in Monterey, California.
A Thousand Splendid Suns (Khaled Hesseini): Two women born a generation apart witness the destruction of their home and family in war-torn Kabul, losses incurred over the course of thirty years that test the limits of their strength and courage. By the author of The Kite Runner.
