June's Evening Book Club
June 07, 2011
Our next selection for the Riverside Evening Book Club is The Rich Part of Life, by Jim Kokoris. A young boy‘s life is changed when is father wins the lottery. Teddy is an eleven-year-old boy forced into maturity before his time. He lives with his younger brother and their eccentric Civil War historian father, a man more comfortable with discussing Confederate footwear than what kind of day his sons had. Their lives have been quiet for a year since the real lifeblood of their household, Teddy‘s mother, died in a tragic car accident. As events spiral out of control, the family struggles to discover what the rich part of life really is.
It’s not too late to pick up a copy to discuss at our next meeting on June 27 at 7:00 p.m.
