Enjoy lively discussion with fellow reading enthusiasts; drop-ins welcome. Date and times of event 1st Monday of the month, two locations and times . This month we are reading "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" by Rachel Joyce. Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack of quotidian minutiae is a letter addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl from a woman he hasn’t seen or heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye.
