Book Discussion @ IPL
Begins: May 23, 2017
Ends: May 23, 2017

What Alice Forgot will be the topic of the book discussion at the Independence Public Library this month.  All are welcome to attend at 6:30 pm in the Community Room.

Funny and knowing, especially about the details of domesticity, this agile novel is also a light-handed look at what we choose to remember, and fight to forget. From the author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers, The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, What Alice Forgot is a “cheerfully engaging” novel for anyone who’s ever asked herself, “How did I get here?” Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over. Multiple copies of the book are now available for check out at the library and on the nooks.

For more information, please call 319-334-2470 or visit www.independenceia.org/library.
