Books and Brews offsite Book Discussion

Join us at Stubborn Beauty Brewing 180 Johnson St, Middletown, CT 06457 for our offsite book discussion.

Our book, Northwest Corner by  John Burnham Schwartz

From Goodreads: "Northwest Corner is a riveting story about the complex, fierce, ultimately inspiring resilience of families in the face of life’s most difficult and unexpected challenges. Twelve years after a tragic accident and a cover-up that led to prison time, Dwight Arno, now fifty, is a man who has started over without exactly moving on. Living alone in California, Dwight manages a sporting goods store and dates a woman to whom he hasn’t revealed the truth about his past. Sam, Dwight’s estranged college-age son, has shown up without warning, fleeing a devastating incident in his own life. As the two men are forced to confront their similar natures and their half-buried hopes for connection, they must also search for redemption. 

Discussion will be facilitated by Christy Billings. Questions? (860) 347-2528 EXT 160 or cbillings@russelllibrary.org

Copies of the book are available for checkout at Russell Library's Borrowing Desk.
