Virtual: Third Thursday Night Adult Book Club

Virtual: Third Thursday Night Adult Book Club

This book club will be held virtually, hosted by Washington County Library. This month's selection is Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine: A Novel by Gail Honeyman.

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. Smart, warm, uplifting, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is the story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . . The only way to survive is to open your heart.

You are welcome to join with the group in the discussion about this month’s selection! Please contact Suzanne to send you a Zoom invitation to the meeting and to assist you in finding a copy of the book if you would like to read or listen to.Thank you!
