Location: Friends of the Shorewood Library Program Room
The PM Book Club is a great opportunity to talk about what you’ve read, learn something new, discover new books, and meet new friends.
If you enjoyed Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven, join us for a discussion of The Lola Quartet, one of Mandel's earlier novels. The Lola Quartet follows a promising, but struggling young journalist as he takes a job as a real estate broker during the 2009 economic collapse.
Gavin Sasaki's a promising young journalist in New York City, until he's fired in disgrace following a series of unforgivable lapses in his work. It's early 2009, and the world has gone dark very quickly: the economic collapse has turned an era that magazine headlines once heralded as the second gilded age into something that more closely resembles the Great Depression. The last thing Gavin wants to do is return to his hometown of Sebastian, Florida, but he's drifting toward bankruptcy and is in no position to refuse when he's offered a job by his sister, Eilo, a real estate broker who deals.
