8 of us met to discuss Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. Bee Branch’s mother, Bernadette is a MacArthur Genius award winning architect who hasn’t had a project in years. When her behavior becomes a little over the top, her husband decides it is time to take action and have her committed. Most of the action takes place leading up to this deciding moment. What I haven’t described is the humor in this novel. From the Seattle setting to the kooky characters, this book is a really fun one to read. The majority of us who met really enjoyed it.
It is time to vote for next year’s selections! Come into the library to grab your ballot. I’ll be accepting votes from now until the December 10th meeting.
