Book discussion: The Nest

Monday, October 2, 2017 (All day)

The next book for discussion will be The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney. Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, October 2:

  • at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
  • and again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.

Every family has its problems. But even among the most troubled, the Plumb family stands out as spectacularly dysfunctional. Years of simmering tensions reach a breaking point on an unseasonably cold afternoon in New York City as the siblings confront their reckless older brother, whose recent accident and rehab stint have endangered the joint trust fund they’re all counting on.

In this tender, entertaining, and deftly written debut novel, Sweeney illuminates what money does to relationships, what happens to ambition over the course of time, and the fraught yet unbreakable ties of family.

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!
