Books Sandwiched In Meets May 3

Post Date:04/20/2017 8:33 AM

Books Sandwiched In will meet at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 3 in Meeting Room C of the Chapel Hill Public Library, 100 Library Drive, for a discussion of Some Luck by Jane Smiley. Kathy Newell will lead the discussion. 

This story chronicles the life and times of a remarkable family over three decades in America.  On their farm in Iowa, Rosanna and Walter abide by values they pass onto their five wildly different children.  Each chapter is a single year, beginning in 1920 as American soldiers like Walter return home from WWI. It goes through the 50’s at the start of enormous social and economic change.  As their children branch out, so does the story, eventually encompassing several generations, cities, and cultural movements.  Smiley has characters that take what life brings and puts them in what feels like simpler times.  This is a book said to be written with humor and affection.

Books Sandwiched In is free and open to the public.  You may bring a sandwich and share your thoughts on the book scheduled for discussion.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Chapel Hill Public Library, this group provides copies of current titles, available at the circulation desk on a first come, first served basis.  Selections for the year are chosen by the members and can be found on the Friends' web site at  We hope you will join us.
