Thurs. 7/16 2-3pm Willa Cather Book Club at Wood Memorial Library: Lucy Gayheart

All are welcome to join the Willa Cather Book Club for a discussion of Lucy Gayheart. 
About the book:
In Lucy Gayheart, Willa Cather seems to be writing the lightest and slightest of records of a short life: the obscure life of a young girl in an American village who goes to Chicago to study music, falls in love with a middle-aged singer, knows a brief moment of deep contentment and then the pain of a separation that is final--but the impression left on the reader is not slight. The unity of Miss Cather's design, the clarity and distinction of this book should put it beside her first great success, My Antonia.

Group leader Chris Wolak is a former college English professor who studied Cather at the University of Nebraska and is a member of the Willa Cather Foundation.
We are a quarterly book club that meets at the Wood Memorial Library and Museum (783 Main St., South Windsor, CT).

More about Behind the Red Door:
When Fern Douglas sees the news about Astrid Sullivan, a thirty-four-year-old missing woman from Maine, she is positive that she knows her. Fern’s husband is sure it’s because of Astrid’s famous kidnapping—and equally famous return—twenty years ago, but Fern has no memory of that, even though it happened an hour outside her New Hampshire hometown. And when Astrid appears in Fern’s recurring nightmare, one in which a girl reaches out to her, pleading, Fern fears that it’s not a dream at all, but a memory.

Back at her childhood home to help her father pack for a move, Fern purchases a copy of Astrid’s recently published memoir—which may have provoked her original kidnapper to abduct her again—and as she reads through its chapters and visits the people and places within it, she discovers more evidence that she has an unsettling connection to the missing woman. With the help of her psychologist father, Fern digs deeper, hoping to find evidence that her connection to Astrid can help the police locate her. But when Fern discovers more about her own past than she ever bargained for, the disturbing truth will change both of their lives forever.

Featuring Megan Collins’s signature “dark, tense, and completely absorbing” (Booklist) prose and plenty of shocking twists and turns, Behind the Red Door is an arresting thriller that will haunt you long after you turn the last page.
