You are invited to join the Owl Book Group for a great book discussion held monthly in the library’s 2nd floor Lewis Community Room. Unless otherwise noted, the group typically meets on the last Friday of each month. Newcomers are always welcome!

The Owls kick off the New Year with a discussion of The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt.

13-year-old Theo Decker miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home, disturbed by schoolmates who don’t know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by a longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into an insular art community.

From the streets of New York to the dark corners of the art underworld, this “soaring masterpiece” examines the devastating impact of grief and the ruthless machinations of fate.
