From the Library – Iron Book Discussion Group Will Read “Anything Is Possible” in March 2022
Elizabeth Strout’s Anything Is Possible will be the subject of discussion at the March 2022 meeting of the Iron Book Discussion Group:
BOOK DESCRIPTION: Anything Is Possible explores the whole range of human emotion through the intimate dramas of people struggling to understand themselves and others. There are two sisters: one trades self-respect for a wealthy husband while the other finds in the pages of a book a kindred spirit who changes her life. The janitor at the local school has his faith tested in an encounter with an isolated man he has come to help; a grown daughter longs for mother love even as she comes to accept her mother’s happiness in a foreign country; and the adult Lucy Barton (the heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton) returns to visit her siblings after seventeen years of absence.
New members are always welcome! If you’d like to join the group, please register now through our Event Calendar for the in-person discussion of Anything Is Possible on Tuesday, March 8, at 7:00 PM.
We will also be hosting an online discussion of the book via Zoom on Thursday, March 10, at 3:00 PM. You can register to attend this virtual discussion through our Event Calendar. You will receive an email with the login information for the Zoom meeting.
