Adult Book Club

August 31st at 7pm

The Lincoln Highway-Adult Book Club

For our August meeting, the adult book group will meet to discuss The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles, bestselling author of A Gentleman in Moscow and Rules of Civility.


An odyssey of epic proportions, the journey begins with 18-year-old Emmett Watson who plans to set out for California with his eight-year-old brother after a spate of personal tragedy.  Their plans fall apart with the appearance of two friends from Emmett’s past who steal their car and head to New York instead. Spanning 10 days and told with multiple voices, Towles brings us a novel with richly imagined settings, characters, and themes.
 
Copies of the book are available for check out at the library. Free and open to the public.
