Tuesday Book Club

Tuesday, September 21 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

For the month of September, the Tuesday Book Club will be reading and discussing the novel Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler. See description below. The Tuesday Book Club is currently meeting in the Camden Amphitheatre, weather permitting. New members are always welcome! To be connected with the group’s coordinator, contact jpierce@librarycamden.org.

Summary: Pulitzer Prize winner and American master Anne Tyler brings us an inspired, witty and irresistible contemporary take on one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.

Kate Battista feels stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny? Plus, she’s always in trouble at work – her pre-school charges adore her, but their parents don’t always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner.

Dr. Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There’s only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, all would be lost.

When Dr. Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he’s relying – as usual – on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time he’s really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two men’s touchingly ludicrous campaign to bring her around?
