Book chosen for Fayette discussion group 2.11

Written by David Green.

Fayette’s Thursdays @ 7 Book Club will tackle a story about another book club Feb. 26 when Lorna Landvik’s “Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons” is featured.

Faith, a new resident of Freesia Court, Minn., meets her neighbors when they start a snowball fight in her back yard one night. Friendships are quickly formed and the five women band together to make it through their sometimes boring stay-at-home lives in a small town. Their relationships form around their book club, the Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons.

Eventually, they all must find work outside the home as their children grow and grandchildren arrive.

The friendship is said to typify a special slice of American life in which the power of forgiveness, understanding and laughter heals broken hearts and shattered dreams.

Extra copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. The discussion group is open to any area readers who enjoy talking about books or enjoy listening to others discuss their reactions.

The March book is Barbara Delinsky’s “Family Tree.”
