New Horizons’popular Book Club returns Thursday, January 22 at 10 AM. Join former Librarian Chris Jackson and fellow book-lovers in a fun-filled discussion of A Separate Peace by John Knowles, an American classic and great bestseller for over thirty years. Set at a boys’ boarding school in New England during World War II, A Separate Peace is a parable of the dark side of adolescence. Gene is a lonely, introverted intellectual. Phineas is a handsome, taunting, daredevil athlete. What happens between the two friends one summer, like the war itself, banishes the innocence of these boys and their world.
The books can be obtained in the Narberth Library. Afterwards, stay for a delicious lunch provided by Betty the Caterer for only $2. Stop by 100 Conway Avenue, 2nd Floor, Narberth to sign-up, or call 610 664-2366.
