Fiction Book Club


Our Fiction Book Club meets every other month on the second Monday evening. This month's book club pick is Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson.

Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired) leads a quiet life in the village of St. Mary, England, until his brother's death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village. Drawn together by their shared love of literature and the loss of their respective spouses, the Major and Mrs. Ali soon find their friendship blossoming into something more. But will their relationship survive in a society that considers Ali a foreigner?

Light refreshments are served along with lots of lively discussion. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month before the discussion.
