The March meeting of RPL Book Group was cancelled due to snow.
The new date for this meeting is Tuesday, March 27 at 7 PM.
Diana Rhudick will lead a discussion of The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
Offred, a Handmaid, describes life in what was once the United States, now the Republic of Gilead, a shockingly repressive and intolerant monotheocracy, in a satirical tour de force set in the near future. There has never been a better time to read this chilling novel. Join the discussion!
Vance, a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, provides an account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class. Get and give perspective on this timely issue. Soon to be a movie directed by Ron Howard.
