Come join Miss Trina for some fun book talk. We will be having a snack as we discuss the assigned reading for this meeting and maybe even completing a fun hands-on project or game. This month we will be reading The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall.
Our selection this month is Tinkers by Paul Harding
Tinkers is a haunting little book that weaves together the story of George Crosby, who is dying, with the story of his father, Howard Crosby. As George lies hallucinating, he tries to untangle the threads of his youth and finally come to grips with the enigma that is his father. Howard is an epileptic at a time in history when being so gets one labeled “insane.” He suffers under that burden and finds a way of dealing with it that will haunt his son forever. Paul Harding writes like no one you’ve ever read: lyrical, poetic, spare, and lush.
