ST. LUKE’S BOOK CLUB
The next meeting of St. Luke’s Bookclub will be on Tuesday, October 17 at noon in the Canterbury Room. The book to be discussed will be Chicago: A Novel by Brian Doyle.
On the last day of summer, a young college grad moves to Chicago and rents a small apartment on the north side of the city, by the lake. This is the story of the five seasons he lives there, during which he meets gangsters, gamblers, policemen, a brave and garrulous bus driver, a cricket player, a librettist, his first girlfriend, a shy apartment manager, and many other riveting souls, not to mention a wise and personable dog of indeterminate breed.
A love letter to Chicago, the Great American City, and a wry account of a young man’s coming-of-age during the one summer in White Sox history when they had the best outfield in baseball, Chicago is a novel that will plunge you into a city you will never forget and may well wish to visit for the rest of your days.
Bring your lunch! Please feel free to invite other people you know that enjoy reading – all are welcome!
