Cape Coral Bookies

At the November meeting we'll be talking about "A Separate Peace" by John Knowles, our "classic book" selection for this year. 

Book Description

An American classic and great bestseller for over thirty years, A Separate Peace is timeless in its description of adolescence during a period when the entire country was losing its innocence to the second world war.

Set at a boys’ boarding school in New England during the early years of World War II, A Separate Peace is a harrowing and luminous parable of the dark side of adolescence. Gene is a lonely, introverted intellectual. Phineas is a handsome, taunting, daredevil athlete. What happens between the two friends one summer, like the war itself, banishes the innocence of these boys and their world.

A bestseller for more than thirty years, A Separate Peace is John Knowles’s crowning achievement and an undisputed American classic.

    The first Sat. in Nov. is one of my development's garage sale days. I'm going to try to get rid of some stuff, so I won't make it to this meeting. Have a great discussion.
