Afternoon Book Discussion

The Dighton Library’s Afternoon Book Discussion group is meeting on Thursday, June 30 at 4:00 to discuss Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen.

From the Library Journal: “Formerly a world-famous photographer, Rebecca Winter is past her prime and out of her element. Her photographs are yesterday’s news, her family has fallen apart, and her bank balance is inching toward negative numbers. When she can no longer afford her luxurious Manhattan apartment, Rebecca sublets and moves to a small cabin in the middle of nowhere, on a road that has no name. Away from the noise and clatter of the city, she finds peace in a quiet country life, inspiration in the form of mysterious shrines she discovers hidden deep in the woods, and unexpected love with a husky roofer 30 years her junior. VERDICT Pulitzer Prize winner Quindlen has made a home at the top of the best sellers lists with novels that capture the grace and frailty of everyday life (Object Lessons; Blessings ), and her latest work is sure to take her there again. With spare, elegant prose, she crafts a poignant glimpse into the inner life of an aging woman who discovers that reality contains much more color than her own celebrated black-and-white images.

Copies of the book are available at the library. All are welcome to join the discussion.
