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.
Lila - Marilynne Robinson*
Lila, all but abandoned by her family, was taken as a small child by Doll, who brings her up on the road and on the run. When as an adult Lila drifts into the small Iowa town of Gilead, she is taken in by the minister John Ames, who becomes her husband, and she must learn to reconcile her troubled past wiht her peaceful present. Lila is the 2016 All Iowa Reads selection and Pulitzer Prize-winner.
