Literary Book Group
In August, a month often associated with vacations and tourists, we will discuss The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1985, the main character of Tyler's book is Macon Leary, who writes travel books for business travelers like himself wanting the comforts of their home wherever they are. Set in Baltimore, we are surrounded by memorable, quirky characters including Edward, the dog. Join us for a discussion of this delightful and poignant work in Room 219.
