May 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, May 4, and the pick is The Transit Of Venus by Shirley Hazzard.

Considered “one of the great English-language novels of the twentieth century” (The Paris Review), The Transit of Venus follows Caroline and Grace Bell as they leave Australia to begin a new life in post-war England. From Sydney to London, New York, and Stockholm, and from the 1950s to the 1980s, the two sisters experience seduction and abandonment, marriage and widowhood, love and betrayal.

With exquisite, breathtaking prose, Australian novelist Shirley Hazzard tells the story of the displacements and absurdities of modern life. The result is at once an intricately plotted Greek tragedy, a sweeping family saga, and a desperate love story.

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
