My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante

Join us for a discussion of "My Brilliant Friend" by Elena Ferrante, the first title in her popular Neopolitan novels series. The story begins in the 1950s, in a poor but vibrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples. Growing up on these tough streets, Elena and Lila learn to rely on each other ahead of anyone or anything else. As their paths repeatedly diverge and converge, they remain best friends whose respective destinies are reflected and refracted in the other. They are likewise the embodiments of a nation undergoing momentous changes.

Everybody's Fool by Richard Russo

Join us to discuss Richard Russo’s "Everybody’s Fool," the sequel to the author's 1993 novel, Nobody's Fool. In the new novel, Mr. Russo returns to North Bath and the players that made Nobody’s Fool his first great success. The novel is classic Russo, filled with humor, heart, hard times, and characters who are lovable despite all their faults. Both books are featured in the 2016 One Book, Everybody Reads series. In addition, this program is part of the Library’s three-part book discussion series, Revisiting Our Winners: New Books by One Book Authors.
