Adult Book Discussion

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Northmont
Community Room
In November we read about the real world of author Ann Patchett from her book, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage. 
From her website:
Patchett's nonfiction essays, which started off as a means of keeping her fiction writing afloat, evolved over time into their own art–the art of telling the truth as opposed to the art of making things up. Bringing her narrative gifts to bear on her own life, Patchett uses insight and compassion to turn very personal experiences into essays that twine to create both a portrait of life and a philosophy of life. An examination of the things she is fully committed to, This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is an irresistible blend of literature and memoir, a unique examination of the heart, mind, and soul of one of our most revered and gifted writers.
