Adult Book Discussion: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

Monday, February 3, 2020 -
6:00pm to 7:30pm
This month's Adult Book Discussion book will be Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.

Eleanor Oliphant 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. But everything changes when she and the bumbling IT guy from her office, save 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.

Copies of the book are available in regular and large type. Loans will also be available in audio and eBook formats. Join us for a lively discussion.
