This month’s Adult Book Discussion book will be Commonwealth by Ann Patchett.
One Sunday afternoon, Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating’s christening party uninvited. Before evening falls, he has kissed Franny’s mother, setting in motion the dissolution of their marriages and the joining of two families. Spanning five decades, Commonwealth explores how this chance encounter reverberates through the lives of the four parents and six children involved.
Copies of the book will be available at the Library Services Desk approximately a month before our discussion.
