Gibson's Book Club reads Love, Anthony, by Lisa Genova

Monday, March 2, at 7 PM

Olivia's dream of a "normal" life shattered when her son was diagnosed with autism at age three. But just as Olivia was starting to realize that happiness and autism could coexist, he died. Now she's alone in a cottage on Nantucket, separated from her husband, desperate to understand the meaning of her son's short life.

To deepen our understanding of the issues underlying this novel, we're encouraging everyone also to read Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and What Color is Monday in preparation for this meeting.

Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.

Most of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.

All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 7:00, to give you time to have dinner and relax a bit first. Parking is free in the Capitol Commons garage and on the street, after 5 p.m...
