Join the Friends of the Library as Richard Fox, Head of the Popular Library at CPL, leads the first book discussion of the fall semester.

Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections has taken the literary scene by storm, from its hilarious portrayal of a dysfunctional American family to its insightful jabs at the rat race of contemporary American life. After almost fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is succumbing to Parkinson's disease and dementia, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. Desperate for some pleasure to look forward to, Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home. Winner of the National Book Award.
