April Adult Activities

Come join your fellow community members on Thursday, April 15th at 6:30 p.m. for a lively discussion of both classic works and modern masterpieces. 

 

Our book for April is The Enchanted April by Elizabeth Von Arnim:

A recipe for happiness: four women, one medieval Italian castle, plenty of wisteria, and solitude as needed.

The women at the center of The Enchanted April are alike only in their dissatisfaction with their everyday lives. They find each other—and the castle of their dreams—through a classified ad in a London newspaper one rainy February afternoon. The ladies expect a pleasant holiday, but they don’t anticipate that the month they spend in Portofino will reintroduce them to their true natures and reacquaint them with joy. Now, if the same transformation can be worked on their husbands and lovers, the enchantment will be complete.

Reading copies are available to check out at the Circulation Desk.
