The Oxy Book & Lunch Bunch reading is Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. Our first discussion was so lively we continue for a second gathering. Join us at noon, Tuesday, October 7..
Synopsis: On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. Sadly, she dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in any number of ways. Clearly history (and Kate Atkinson) have plans for her: In Ursula rests nothing less than the fate of civilization.
We are also reading The Amado Women by Desiree Zamorano. Professor Zamorano is an Oxy author so copies of the book are at the book store.
All are welcome!
