Thursday Book Club: Appointment in Samarra by John O’Hara
Julian English is a man who squanders what fate gave him. He lives on the right side of the tracks, with a country club membership and a wife who loves him. His decline and fall, over the course of just 72 hours around Christmas, is a matter of too much spending, too much liquor and a couple of reckless gestures. Books are available at the Circulation Desk. Please register. On March 27th we will discuss the 2014 Read Across Rhode Island choice, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan.
