We will be reading J. Courtney Sullivan's "Saints for all Occasions" for July's General Book Club.
J. Courtney Sullivan’s fourth novel, “Saints for All Occasions,” covers five decades in the lives of a pair of Irish sisters, Nora and Theresa Flynn. Told in parallel narratives that eventually converge, the novel begins twice. Its first opening occurs in 2009 with the death of Nora’s oldest son, Patrick, a middle-aged bar owner, in a car accident. A few pages later, we’ve traveled back to 1957, watching as Nora and Theresa are leaving the Irish village of Miltown Malbay to join Nora’s fiancé, Charlie Rafferty, in Boston.
Princeton Public Library's General Book Club meets at 5:30 the first Tuesday of each month. The discussion is accompanied by a potluck dinner. Books are available at the circulation desk and all are welcome to attend.
