First Thursday Fiction Book Group: The Chaperon by Laura Moriarty

Laura Moriarty explores the lives of the famous and the not-so-famous in her wonderful fiction title, The Chaperone. Louise Brooks is yet to become the famous silent film star -- she's a fifteen-year-old dancer from Wichita going on the adventure of a lifetime to New York City. Joining her on the journey, to her chagrin is Cora Carlisle, a thirty-something homemaker with an all-too-personal goal of her own in the big city. These two individuals will each experience something unique and the trip will have a lasting effect on them both. Louise goes on to become famous and Cora learns to lead her own path back home.

This Thursday, April 3 at 10:00 a.m., the First Thursday Fiction Book Group will meet downstairs in the Theatre Meeting Rooms to discuss Moriarty's book. Please join us for the discussion!

Here are some suggestions from the group:
