Suggestions for future Books

Hi, folks!  I looked through the book list from The End of Your Life Book Club, and found three that seemed to fit the criteria of potentially interesting, available, and not too long.  We can talk about them on Oct. 8. 

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barberry.  325 pg., many copies, CD and downloadable also available.  This is a book that several friends of mine liked very much but I have not read.


Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner.  335 pg., 8 copies.  The glowing review from our book and its accessible length are promising. 

Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín.  262 pg., 11 copies and 3 large print.  From one of the reviews in our catalog, "In Eilis Lacey, Colm Tóibín has created one of fiction's most memorable heroines, and captured, to stunning effect, the immigrant experience in Brooklyn in the 1950s, where young, eager hearts try to navigate the struggles of modern life. 

I think any of these will work well for us.  We can always read them all!
