The Contemporary Fiction Book Club
Event detail

Join us for a new book group at the Main Library. We meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month. Discuss! focuses on topical, thought-provoking contemporary fiction.

The July 2019 selection is The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner. It's 2003 and Romy Hall is at the start of two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women's Correctional Facility, deep in California's Central Valley. Outside is the world from which she has been severed: the San Francisco of her youth and her young son, Jackson. Inside is a new reality: thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive; the bluffing and pageantry and casual acts of violence by guards and prisoners alike; and the deadpan absurdities of institutional living.
