Novel Conversations is a book group hosted by the Coralville Public Library. The group meets at 7 pm on the third Thursday of each month and alternates between classic novels and recent works of fiction and nonfiction. Participants are welcome to come to all the meetings or just those that sound interesting. Everyone is welcome! Refreshments are served.
Multiple copies of each book are available for checkout in the library and are, whenever possible, made available in large print, audiobook, and ebook editions.
Angela’s Ashes - Frank McCourt*
It is not until Frank McCourt was in his sixties that he began to write seriously. Angela's Ashes, the account of his childhood, stunned him by becoming a prize-winner and a bestseller. McCourt's book is - despite its dire subject - winning and often funny, and it became one of the most successful memoirs of the 1990s, later turned into a movie starring Emily Watson and Robert Caryle.
