CLS Book Club: My Brilliant Friend

Our final book club before the summer break will take place on April 17th, 2019 from 10:30-12:00 and will focus on friendship.  Though a deep female friendship lies at the heart of the book selected for our next meeting—My Brilliant Friend, by Elena Ferrante—we will be reading the Wall Street Journal article Friendships for Guys(No Tears) by Jeffrey Zaslow as well.  We will be covering, comparing, and contrasting male friendships with female friendships and diving into the subject as a whole and everyone is welcome.  There will be something for everybody. Please RSVP - to do so, call 843-723-9912 or email dreutter@charlestonlibrarysociety.org
