Pinney Afternoon Book Group discusses The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin @LELC

Pinney Afternoon Book Group discusses The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin @LELC

Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr)
Wednesday, Jul 10, 2:30pm to 3:30pm

The Afternoon Pinney book group will host a discussion of The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. New attendees always welcome. Note: meeting is at Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr.). Synopsis: It's 1969 in New York City's Lower East Side, and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children--four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness--sneak out to hear their fortunes. Their prophecies inform their next five decades. Golden-boy Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in '80s San Francisco; dreamy Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician, obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy; eldest son Daniel seeks security as an army doctor post-9/11, hoping to control fate; and bookish Varya throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the boundary between science and immortality. The Immortalists probes the line between destiny and choice, reality and illusion, this world and the next. It is a deeply moving testament to the power of story, the nature of belief, and the unrelenting pull of familial bonds.

Enjoy child-led play in the park each week, based on the educational approach of Anji Play. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your children's imagination. Kids can create a Play Story based on their activities of the day and grownups will have opportunities to help their kids reflect on their play.

Wear messy clothes and bring a water bottle (optional). If you like, bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!

This award-winning event is created in partnership with the Madison Parks Division and AnjiPlay, and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.
