Please join our book club for September, our book selection is The Last Days of Summer by Steve Kluger.
We are meeting outside at members’ homes but if you’d like to join virtually we can set up the Zoom option.
Last Days of Summer is the story of Joey Margolis, neighborhood punching bag, growing up goofy and mostly fatherless in Brooklyn in the early 1940s. A boy looking for a hero, Joey decides to latch on to Charlie Banks, the all-star third basemen for the New York Giants. But Joey’s chosen champion doesn’t exactly welcome the extreme attention of a persistent young fan with an overactive imagination. Then again, this strange, needy kid might be exactly what Banks needs.
Please bring an appetizer, dessert or drink to share. Hope to see you!
