Virtual Book Club - Fiction
- Date: 07/02/2020 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
We're all being responsible and socially distancing - but we still want to talk about books! So join us for a good old-fashioned (well, ok, new-fashioned) virtual book club. If you're looking for a good read and getting antsy for a chance to talk about something other than coronavirus, the economy, and the state of the TP aisle, here’s your chance.
Fiction Book Club:
The Magnetic Girl
by Jessica Handler
In rural north Georgia two decades after the Civil War, thirteen-year-old Lulu Hurst reaches high into her father's bookshelf and pulls out an obscure book, The Truth of Mesmeric Influence. Deemed gangly and undesirable, Lulu wants more than a lifetime of caring for her disabled baby brother, Leo. "I only wanted to be Lulu Hurst, the girl who captivated her brother until he could walk and talk and stand tall on his own. Then I would be the girl who could leave." Lulu begins to "captivate" her friends and family, controlling their thoughts and actions for brief moments at a time. After Lulu convinces a cousin she conducts electricity with her touch, her father sees a unique opportunity. He grooms his tall and indelicate daughter into an electrifying new woman: The Magnetic Girl.
