Chevy Chase Library Book Club: 'Affinity' by Sarah Waters

Affinity coverThe January selection of the Chevy Chase Library's Book Club is Affinity by Sarah Waters.

Affinity tells the story of Margaret Prior, an upper-class woman recovering from a suicide attempt. She has begun visiting the women’s ward of Millbank prison, Victorian London’s grimmest jail, as part of her rehabilitative charity work.

Margaret finds herself increasingly fascinated by one apparently innocent inmate, the enigmatic spiritualist Selina Dawes.
 
The book club will meet on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 7 p.m. Copies of the book and the audiobook are available on a display near the information desk at the branch.
