The UU Book Club has selected its books for 2012 and look forward to an exciting year of reading. At UU on January 4th at 1:30 pm we will discuss two novels, The Paris Wife by Paula McClain and The Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemmingway. Helene will be the moderator and hostess. The first novel is about Hadley Richardson, Hemmingway’s first wife, and the affect on their marriage during the “Jazz Age” in Paris where they are part of a fast-living, hard-drinking, promiscuous group of emerging (now famous) writers. This heartbreaking portrayal of love and deception is told from Hadley’s perspective, while The Moveable Feast is written through Hemmingway’s lens.” All UU Members and Friends are invited to view The Sun also Rises, based on Hemmingway’s novel about the Spanish Civil war starting at 3:00 pm on the same day. The potluck dinner to follow has been cancelled. Participants may have an optional dinner together at a local restaurant.
The book group will read The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta for our meeting on February 1st.
