Book: "Rubyfruit Jungle" by Rita Mae Brown A landmark coming-of-age novel that launched the career of one of this country’s most distinctive voices, Rubyfruit Jungle remains a transformative work more than forty years after its original publication. In bawdy, moving prose, Rita Mae Brown tells the story of Molly Bolt, the adoptive daughter of a dirt-poor Southern couple who boldly forges her own path in America. With her startling beauty and crackling wit, Molly finds that women are drawn to her wherever she goes—and she refuses to apologize for loving them back. This literary milestone continues to resonate with its message about being true to yourself and, against the odds, living happily ever after. ------------ We will be meeting in Meeting Room #2 (the Crane Room) at Noel Wien Library. We will be discussing what we thought about the book (likes, dislikes, and general thoughts). The meeting will be unstructured (no agenda) so that the conversation can flow in whatever direction we want to take it in. Please read the book before the meeting. You may bring the book if you wish but it is not required. Having the book with you may make it easier to reference sections.
