Etta's greatest unfulfilled wish, living in the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan, is to see the sea. And so, at the age of eighty-two she gets up very early one morning, takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 2,000 miles to water. If this intrigues you join the Dover Public Library's Book Group to discuss Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper. We will meet on Monday, June 20 at 6:30pm in the Trustees Room. Hope to see you there!

The Boys in the Boat | Daniel James Brown. Book Club 2015. "The wood, Pocock murmured, taught us about survival, about overcoming difficulty, about prevailing over adversity, but it also taught us something about the underlying reason for surviving in the first place. Something about infinite beauty, about undying grace, about things larger and greater than ourselves. About the reasons we were all here."

Under the Wide and Starry Sky By Nancy Horan 496 pages In this novel, based on real events, eccentric, single-minded Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne, a mother with three children, heads to Europe to escape her cheating husband. In a resort town, she picks up a young beau who turns out to be future famous author Robert Louis Stevenson. Thus begins Fanny's new life as the wife of a Bohemian British writer, with whom she explores the South Pacific (among other adventures).
"Now, Horan’s second novel, “Under the Wide and Starry Sky,” carries on this burgeoning genre with the story of 19th-century Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his American wife, Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne. The latest pick for the “Today” show’s book club, it’s operatic, global in its settings and dead-on in its portrayal of pre-feminism-era women and their limited opportunities." -Washington Post
