The Hartman Home, 12 Mohawk Street, Rye, NY 10580
The February Bool Club will be held at the Hartman Home in Rye, 12 Mohawk Street at 7:30pm. The Book chosen is "Little Fires Everywhere" by Celeste Ng.
This novel takes place in the hometown of the author, which is a suburb of Cleveland, a place called Shaker Heights. The novel follows two families. One of the families adheres to the town's ethos: They are progressive, wealthy, concerned with appearance, and they follow rules. The other family is a mother and daughter who move in from out of town. They are outsiders. The mother is an artist. The families become entangled, and tension develops, particularly when the two families take different sides on an issue that divides the town.
