Virtual Book Discussion: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

Virtual Book Discussion: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert   
Tuesday November 17, 7:00-8:00pm

In 1940, Vivian Morris has just been kicked out of Vassar College, owing to her lackluster freshman-year performance. Her affluent parents send her to Manhattan to live with her Aunt Peg, who owns a flamboyant, crumbling midtown theater called the Lily Playhouse. There Vivian is introduced to an entire cosmos of unconventional and charismatic characters, but when Vivian makes a personal mistake that results in professional scandal, it turns her new world upside down in ways that it will take her years to fully understand. Now 95 years old and telling her story at last, she recalls how the events of those years altered the course of her life.


Led by Jillian Holmberg. Please email framinghamlibrarybookgroups@gmail.com for the link to join. (Available to borrow by eBook or Audiobook on Overdrive/Libby). December's title will be "The Snow Child" by Eowyn Ivey.
