Polish Heritage Book Club: The Coast of Chicago

Thursday, April 13, 2017, 3:00 PM.

Our English-language book discussion group focuses on literature related to Poland and Polish culture. This month we’re discussing The Coast of Chicago by Stuart Dybek.

The stolid landscape of Chicago suddenly turns dreamlike and otherworldly. A child’s collection of bottle caps becomes the tombstones of a graveyard. A lowly rightfielder’s inexplicable death turns him into a martyr to baseball. Strains of Chopin floating down the tenement airshaft are transformed into a mysterious anthem of loss. Combining homely detail and heartbreakingly familiar voices with grand leaps of imagination, this short story collection is a masterpiece from one of America’s most highly regarded writers.

Ask for the book at the Library Services Desk about one month before our meeting.
