Join the friends and staff of the Woodridge Interim Library in a discussion of the book The Emperor of Ocean Park by Stephen L. Carter.
Stephen Carter combines a large-scale, riveting novel of suspense with the saga of a unique family. The Emperor of Ocean Park is a novel set in two privileged worlds: the upper crust African American society of the Eastern seaboard—families who summer at Martha’s Vineyard, live in Washington, DC—and work in the inner circle of an Ivy League law school. Superbly written and filled with memorable characters. The Emperor of Ocean Park is both a stunning literary achievement and a grand literary entertainment.
The Woodridge Library and Friends Book Club club meets on the third Sunday of each month at 3 p.m. The Woodridge Library and Friends Book Club was formed in conjunction with the Friends of the Woodridge Library. Book titles suggested by the members and the library staff and have ranged in topics from memoirs, local history, fiction and nonfiction titles. We welcome your participation and suggestions.
