Book Discussion: Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney [In-Person]

December 8, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Read this novel, about 85-year-old Lillian Boxfish, who takes a walk across Manhattan in 1984. As she traverses the city, she encounters bartenders, bodega clerks, chauffeurs, security guards, bohemians, criminals, children, parents, and parents-to-be in surprising moments of generosity and grace. Lillian recalls her long and eventful life that included a brief reign as the highest paid advertising woman in America — a career cut short by marriage, motherhood, divorce, and a breakdown. Join us for a discussion with Helen. *Registration required. Call 631.979.1600 to sign up, or if you have a Hauppauge Library card, you may register by clicking here.
