FCPL’s newest adult book club, Read a Book, is for fans of great stories and great films. Our premier selection is Alice Sebold’s novel The Lovely Bones which we will view and discuss next month at the library on Post Road.
The supernatural drama is narrated by a fourteen-year-old murder victim from a place she calls The Inbetween. It is truly a one-of-kind story that contains both hope and heartache as the young Susie Salmon encounters kindred spirits while observing her loved ones in grief and her killer as he draws their suspicions.
The 2009 film has a remarkable cast that includes Susan Sarandon, Mark Walhberg and Stanley Tucci under the direction of Peter Jackson.
We hope you can join us October 9 for the film and October 16 for a discussion of the novel. Both events will take place at 10:30 am in the meeting room of the Post Road Library.
