LFP - After I Stop Lying by Deborah Bacharach

Mar 27 2015 6:30 pm
Mar 27 2015 7:30 pm

In After
I Stop Lying
, women confront the mundane and strive for the sacred.
One lonely student reaches out to touch a statue of Jesus. A new mother
sees, for the first time, the beauty in the overhead lights of a grocery
store. A sexual adventurer claims her dance with Apollo. Bacharach takes
on pivotal moments in a woman's life-trying to conceive, leaving a child
at day care, considering breast cancer-and does so with honesty, clarity,
and intensity.

LFP - Literary Book Club -Thunderstruck

Mar 30 2015 7:00 pm
Mar 30 2015 8:00 pm

This suspenseful work of narrative nonfiction evokes the dynamism of the Edwardian era, when great shipping companies competed to build the biggest, fastest ocean liners; scientific advances dazzled the public; and the rich outdid one another with ostentatious displays of wealth. Against this background, Larson tells the interwoven stories of two men - Hawley Crippen, a very unlikely murderer, and Guglielmo Marconi, the obsessive creator of a seemingly supernatural means of communication - whose lives intersect during one of the greatest criminal chases of all time.

Join Jane in the Den for a lively discussion.
