FIRST THURS­DAY BOOK CLUB will meet at 7 p.m. on Thurs­day, Nov. 2, at Shoney’s on Red Bud Road. We will dis­cuss E. An­nie Proulx Pulitzer Prize win­ning book The Ship­ping News. Ama­zon review states: In this touch­ing and at­mo­spheric novel set among the fish­er­men of New­found­land, Proulx tells the story of Quoyle. From all out­ward ap­pear­ances, Quoyle has gone through his first 36 years on earth as a big schlump of a loser. He’s not at­trac­tive, he’s not brilliant or witty or tal­ented, and he’s not the kind of per­son who typ­i­cally as­sumes the cen­tral po­si­tion in a novel. But Proulx cre­ates a sim­ple and com­pelling tale of Quoyle’s psy­cho­log­i­cal and spir­i­tual growth. Along the way, we get to look in on the mar­itime beauty of what is prob­a­bly a dis­ap­pear­ing way of life. ALL ARE WEL­COME! Ar­rive a lit­tle ear­lier to en­joy din­ner! For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Roberta Char­bon­neau at 678-773-5655.
