April Book Club

Our adult book buyer Lori Feathers facilitates an interesting and lively discussion about a fiction or non-fiction title each month. Come and share your opinions about the book and glean a deeper or different understanding of it from other readers. All are welcome! This month’s book club will take place on TUESDAY, April 6, and the pick is There But For The by Ali Smith.

When a dinner-party guest named Miles locks himself in an upstairs room and refuses to come out, he sets off a media frenzy. He also sets in motion a mesmerizing puzzle of a novel, one that harnesses acrobatic verbal playfulness to a truly affecting story.
 
Miles communicates only by cryptic notes slipped under the door. We see him through the eyes of four people who barely know him, ranging from a precocious child to a confused elderly woman. But while the characters’ wit and wordplay soar, their story remains profoundly grounded. As it probes our paradoxical need for both separation and true connection, There but for the balances cleverness with compassion, the surreal with the deeply, movingly real, in a way that only Ali Smith can.

Due to COVID-19, the book club is currently meeting virtually via Zoom. For access to the meeting link, email Lori@interabangbooks.com. Lori will include you in the password email she circulates the date of the meeting. All are welcome, including first-timers
