    Our host for this month is Jane Johnson.  

    Due to the cancelation of our January meeting, our book selection is once again  “The Dutch House: A Novel," by Ann Patchett.


    At the end of WWII, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves.

    The story is told by Cyril’s son Danny, as he and his older sister, Maeve, are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. It is this unshakeable bond between them that both saves their lives and thwarts their futures.

    Our host for this month is TBD.

    Our book is “The Underground Railroad: A Novel," by Colson Whitehead.


    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, this #1 New York Times bestseller chronicles a young slave's experiencs as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. In Whitehead's ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor: engineers and conductors operate a secret network of actual tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora, a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia, embarks on a harrowing flight from one state to the next, encountering, like Gulliver on his travels, strange yet familiar iterations of her own world at each stop.
