Leaving Lucy Pear

Monday, March 6, 7:00 - 8:30 pm.

This month’s Adult Book Discussion book will be Leaving Lucy Pear by Anna Solomon.

In 1917 Beatrice sneaks out of her uncle's house on Cape Ann, Massachusetts, leaves her baby at the foot of a pear tree, and watches as another woman claims the infant as her own. Ten years later, Prohibition is in full swing, post-WWI America is in the grips of rampant xenophobia, and Bea returns to her uncle’s house, seeking refuge from her unhappiness. But she discovers far more.

Copies of the book will be available at the Library Services Desk approximately a month before our discussion.
