Classics Book Club-The Member of the Wedding

Join us August 22nd at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss The Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers.

Member of the Wedding

Here is the story of the inimitable twelve-year-old Frankie, who is utterly, hopelessly bored with life until she hears about her older brother’s wedding. Bolstered by lively conversations with her house servant, Berenice, and her six-year-old male cousin — not to mention her own unbridled imagination — Frankie takes on an overly active role in the wedding, hoping even to go, uninvited, on the honeymoon, so deep is her desire to be the member of something larger, more accepting than herself.

Ask at the desk for a copy of this classic or email baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve a copy today! And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming discussions:
9/26/2017, Wuthering Heights by Charlotte Bronte
10/24/2017, Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt
