Read Between the Wines: September 15th, 2016

Usually “Reading between the Wines” happens on the first Thursday evening of every month. This month we are deviating a bit. Our first book of the new College Club year is “Harriet Wolfe’s Seventh Book of Wonders” by Julianna Baggott. In “Harriet Wolf’s Seventh Book of Wonders,” its title character rewrites the story of her life when she’s in old age. Her aim is to leave behind a document explaining herself to her daughter, Eleanor, who never knew her own father, and to Eleanor’s daughters, Tilton and Ruth. Harriet Wolf’s Seventh Book of Wonders, Julianna Baggott’s most sweeping and mesmerizing novel yet, offers a profound meditation on motherhood and sisterhood, as well as on the central importance of stories. It is a novel that affords its characters that rare chance we all long for-the chance to reimagine the stories of our lives while there’s still time.
