Join the Groton Neighbors ZOOM Book Discussion Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 4-5:15 p.m. Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner RSVP: David Smith at dfsmith535@gmail.com Limit of 15 “It's a good time of year to lose yourself in an absorbing, transportive story that has nothing topical, tropical, stormy, or smarmy about it. Wallace Stegner (1909-1993) may be better known for his 1972 Pulitzer Prize-winner, "Angle of Repose," but it's his last novel, "Crossing to Safety," that keeps drawing me back. This is the kind of book that reminds you why reading is such a wonderful solace and escape.” Heller McAlpin, Christian Science Monitor This semi-autobiographical novel follows the many-decades’ friendship of two couples, from their early married lives through the twists and turns their lives and careers bring to them. It is a gentle, wise and beautifully crafted, thought by many to be one of the finest works of the 20th Century. Discussion facilitated by David Smith, Former English Faculty member at Lawrence Academy. Groton Public Library will be reserving copies of this book that can be picked up curbside.
