February 27thCommonwealth by Ann Patchett

Spanning five decades, Commonwealth explores how a chance encounter reverberates through the lives of the four parents and six children involved. Spending summers together in Virginia, the Keating and Cousins children forge a lasting bond based on a shared disillusionment with their parents and the strange and genuine affection that grows among them.

 

 

 

March 27thCan’t we talk about something more Pleasant? by Roz Chast

This month we are tackling a graphic novel for our book club. New Yorker cartoonist  Chast  writes a bravely honest and yet funny memoir of watching her parents decline, become too frail to stay in the Brooklyn apartment they called home for five decades, suffer dementia and physical depletion, and die in their nineties in a hospice-care.
