July book discussion

We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates

The July title for our group book discussion is the 1996 fiction novel We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates. The Mulvaneys are a large and fortunate clan, blessed with good looks, abundant charisma and boundless promise. But over the 25-year span of this book they slide from the pinnacle of happiness, transformed into a scattered collection of lost and lonely souls. What happened?

The discussion will be at 7 pm on Monday, July 27. All are welcome to join the conversation - try it once, or join in every month!
