Adult Book Club

"The Red House" by Mark Haddon

The Red House by Mark HaddonJoin us on Thursday, June 26 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss June's book club selection, The Red House by Mark Haddon.

When Richard, a wealthy doctor, invites his estranged sister Angela and her family to join him and his newly-acquired wife and stepdaughter for a week at a vacation home in the English countryside, the stage is set for seven straight days of a tragicomedy at its finest.

The Red House is an extraordinary narrative about a family, with alternating viewpoints of its members, that tragically -- and comically -- allows the reader to understand them as they will never understand one another. Pick up a copy today and discover what Real Simple describes as "A beautiful and authentic portrait of a blended family and the secrets, grudges and desires that keep its members apart."

The Francis A. Gregory Adult Book Club meets the fourth Thursday of each month. Copies are available for check-out.
