Book Club Gathers Tomorrow — It’s the Truth

I am not going to fib you. The River City Books fiction book club will meet at 7 p.m., tomorrow (Tuesday, July 1), in the store’s downstairs meeting area. The book to be read is The Patron Saint of Liars by Ann Patchett.

As always, the club is free and open to the public. New members are welcome. If you join you receive 20 percent off every title the club selects.

Patchett, of course, is the critically acclaimed author of Bel Canto, Run, and others. Here’s a summary of “Liars,” her first book (and one people tell me is her best — honest):

St. Elizabeth’s is a home for unwed mothers in the 1960s. Life there is not unpleasant, and for most, it is temporary. Not so for Rose, a beautiful, mysterious woman who comes to the home pregnant but not unwed. She plans to give up her baby because she knows she cannot be the mother it needs. But St. Elizabeth’s is near a healing spring, and when Rose’s time draws near, she cannot go through with her plans, not all of them. And she cannot remain forever untouched by what she has left behind … and who she has become in the leaving.
