Fayette book discussion planned 02.09.2011

Written by David Green.

The Thursdys @ 7 Book Discussion Group at Fayette’s Normal Memorial Library will meet Feb. 24, to discuss “The Piano Teacher” by Y.K. Lee.

In 1942, Will Truesdale, an Englishman who recently arrived in Hong Kong, enters into a passionate relationship with Trudy Liang, a beautiful Eurasian socialite. Their love affair is threatened by the invasion of the Japanese.

Ten years later, Claire Pendleton arrives in Hong Kong and is hired by the wealthy Chen family as their daughter’s piano teacher. Claire, a provincial English newlywed, is seduced by the colony’s social life, and soon begins an affair, only to discover that her lover is hiding a devastating past.

Extra copies of “The Piano Teacher” are available at the circulation desk. The public is invited to stop by and discuss the book or to listen to others.
