February Meetup: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

For February, Ivy will be leading us in a discussion of Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.

Description:  On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. Sadly, she dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in any number of ways. Clearly history (and Kate Atkinson) have plans for her: In Ursula rests nothing less than the fate of civilization.

Wildly inventive, darkly comic, startlingly poignant — this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best, playing with time and history, telling a story that is breathtaking for both its audacity and its endless satisfactions.

Reminder: Time Tested is happy to order a book for you if they don't have it on the shelves - and it's easy! Just call or stop by... they put in orders on Tuesdays and it is often available that Thursday. Be sure to let them know you are with the Sacramento Women's Book Club.

The $5 fee goes to Time Tested Books for letting us use their great space.

Please bring a dish to share with the group (whatever you like!). We mingle for the first 30 minutes and sit down for discussion promptly at 7pm.  Thanks!

    Still ill. I loved the book and was looking forward to attending the meeting. Here's hoping I will be in remission and can attend next month.
