Next book discussion for adults -- Monday, November 13th
For our next book discussion group for adults, we've chosen a novel that is fiction based on fact. Lucy, by Ellen Feldman, tells the love story of a young Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor's social secretary, Lucy Mercer. When Eleanor discovers love letters written between FDR and Lucy, divorce is discussed, but Franklin's honor and political ambitions will not allow for such a thing. Instead, he promises to never see Lucy again. Folks who know history, however, know that FDR's promise was not one he could keep.
We have multiple copies of this book available for your reading pleasure. Stop by the library and ask for a copy at the circulation desk.
