As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.

PA3 Book Club Meeting

All:

We had a bit of a tie for the book selection this month, so I'm casting my vote for The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer. Meg Wolitzer, a professor in the Creative Writing MFA program at Stony Brook Southampton, was a guest artist at the Princeton Atelier in the Lewis Center in 2014 and participated in a reading at the Lewis Center earlier this year. Bonus - Nora Ephron turned one of her books ("This is My Life") into a movie!

Excerpt from the NY Times book review:
“The Interestings” is warm, all-American and acutely perceptive about the feelings and motivations of its characters, male and female, young and old, gay and straight; but it’s also stealthily, unassumingly and undeniably a novel of ideas. Wolitzer has been writing excellent fiction for 30 years, and it has always been this astute. From the start, her subject has been the practical, emotional and sexual fallout of women’s liberation, particularly as it affects mothers and children. But here she has written a novel that speaks as directly to men as to women. With this book, she has surpassed herself.
