Page Turners Book Club
This month's book selection is The Secret Life of Violet Grant by Beatriz Williams.
Fresh from college, irrepressible Vivian Schuyler defies her wealthy Fifth Avenue family to work at cutthroat Metropolitan magazine. But this is 1964, and the editor dismisses her...until a parcel lands on Vivian's Greenwich Village doorstep that starts a journey into the life of an aunt she never knew, who might give her just the story she's been waiting for. In 1912, Violet Schuyler Grant moved to Europe to study physics, and made a disastrous marriage to a philandering fellow scientist. As the continent edges closer to the brink of war, a charismatic British army captain enters her life, drawing her into an audacious gamble that could lead to happiness...or disaster. Fifty years later, Violet's ultimate fate remains shrouded in mystery. But the more obsessively Vivian investigates her disappearing aunt, the more she realizes all they have in common — and that Violet's secret life is about to collide with hers.
The Page Turners meet the third Wednesday of each month at 1 p.m. Our book selections cover all genres and take member input into consideration. During each six month period, we discuss at least one nonfiction book and one classic book. Genres for the remaining months vary. We engage in a guided discussion of the book, using questions provided by a librarian. Our discussions often branch out into chats about other books and authors. This book club is best suited for adults, but all are welcome to join.
- Registration is not required.
- This event will take place in-person at the Burlington County Library.
