A Novel Dormont Book Club

November 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our November gathering will be on Wednesday, November 29th from 7 to 8:45 PM at the Dormont Public Library. The book selection is Moonglow by Michael Chabon. In 1989, fresh from the publication of his first novel, Chabon traveled to his mother’s home in Oakland, California, to visit his terminally ill grandfather. Tongue loosened by powerful painkillers, memory stirred by the imminence of death, Chabon’s grandfather shared recollections and told stories the younger man had never heard before, uncovering bits and pieces of a history long buried and forgotten. That dreamlike week of revelations forms the basis for the novel Moonglow.
