Book Discussion: One True Thing by Anna Quindlen (Afternoon)

One True Thing by Anna Quindlen

Open to district residents only. Limit of 20 people.

Over-achieving Ellen has just graduated from Harvard and begun a journalism career when her father requests that she return home to care for her mother, who has been diagnosed with cancer. Resentful of this delay to proving herself a literary star to her English professor father, Ellen begins the task of nursing her dying mother, a woman whose many domestic gifts she regarded with disdain while growing up. The intimacy created by her care-giving role causes Ellen to see her parents in a new light, and her maturation from driven performer to loving daughter includes a subplot concerning the true nature of her mother's death. Sign-up begins Wednesday, March 12 at the adult reference desk. You will receive a copy of the book and discussion questions at that time.
