Field Notes Book Group

Saturday, November 21, 2020 - 11:00am to 12:30pm

On Saturday, November 21, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the Field Notes Book Group will meet virtually by zoom to discuss Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk, by Kathleen Rooney.

This novel takes place over the night of New Year's Eve, 1984, as the title character walks from her apartment in New York City to a party she's attending.  Lillian is in her 80's, a woman who made her mark in advertising and publishing back in the 1930's, and now as she traverses the dark New York of the 1980's, she thinks back over her wild life and how the city has changed, and not changed.

Copies of the book will be available at The Field Library circulation desk.  If you are interested in attending, contact Nora Mulligan ( the week of the meeting to get the zoom link.
