The Downtown Book Club will host their first gathering of 2024 on Monday, February 12 at City Winery. Join them for dinner and a social discussion of the book, Tom Lake, by Ann Patchett.
About the Book:
Tom Lake is a meditation on youthful love, married love, and the lives parents have led before their children were born. Both hopeful and elegiac, it explores what it means to be happy even when the world is falling apart. As in all of her novels, Ann Patchett combines compelling narrative artistry with piercing insights into family dynamics. The result is a rich and luminous story, told with profound intelligence and emotional subtlety, that demonstrates once again why she is one of the most revered and acclaimed literary talents working today.
