  • Book Club

    01/19/23 @ 12:00pm - 01/19/23 @ 2:00pm Atwater Library Community Room Atwater Memorial Library Registration is required. Book Club takes place at the Atwater Memorial Library on the 3rd Thursday of every month at noon! If you would like to become a member, register for this event, and you will be added to the member's list for all future titles and meetings. This month's title is, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith. "From the moment she entered the world, Francie Nolan needed to be made of stern stuff, for growing up in the Williamsburg slums of Brooklyn, New York demanded fortitude, precocity, and strength of spirit. Often scorned by neighbors for her family’s erratic and eccentric behavior―such as her father Johnny’s taste for alcohol and Aunt Sissy’s habit of marrying serially without the formality of divorce―no one, least of all Francie, could say that the Nolans’ life lacked drama. By turns overwhelming, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the Nolans’ daily experiences are raw with honestly and tenderly threaded with family connectedness. Betty Smith has, in the pages of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, captured the joys of humble Williamsburg life―from “junk day” on Saturdays, when the children traded their weekly take for pennies, to the special excitement of holidays, bringing cause for celebration and revelry. Smith has created a work of literary art that brilliantly captures a unique time and place as well as deeply resonant moments of universal experience"
