Monroe Book Club

"We Are Water" by Wally Lamb

Join the Monroe Book Club to celebrate the love of reading with other members of the community. This month's selection is "We Are Water" by Wally Lamb.

How the book club works:
To get a copy of the book, visit the library and let the front desk know you're going to attend the Monroe Book Club meeting (limited copies available; ready to check out at the beginning of the month before the meeting).
Then read the book and go to the Monroe Book Club meeting on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.

More about this month's book:
"We Are Water" is a disquieting and ultimately uplifting novel about a marriage, a family, and human resilience in the face of tragedy, from Wally Lamb, the New York Times bestselling author of "The Hour I First Believed" and "I Know This Much Is True." After 27 years of marriage and three children, Anna Oh—wife, mother, outsider artist—has fallen in love with Viveca, the wealthy Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her success. They plan to wed in the Oh family's hometown of Three Rivers in Connecticut. But the wedding provokes some very mixed reactions and opens a Pandora's Box of toxic secrets—dark and painful truths that have festered below the surface of the Ohs' lives. https://sno-isle.bibliocommons.com/item/show/652511121
