As part of the Big Read program, join the Southwest Book Club this month to discuss The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. After being drawn together by the shadows of their past, four women start meeting every week in San Francisco to engage in hobbies they all enjoy. After one of the four members dies, her daughter takes her place to fulfill her mother's dying wish. After the revelation of a secret, the women are forced to think back to their pasts and remember the sometimes painful events of their lives. With wit and sensitivity, Tan examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between mothers and daughters.
Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend. The book club meets monthly at the Southwest Branch Library. For more information, please call 407.835.7323 or email email@example.com.
