Day time Book Club – Next meeting March 28, 2019

The next meeting of the Central St. Matthew Daytime Book Club will be March 28 at 10 am at the home of Arlean Fermanis.  For that meeting we will be reading, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine  by Gail Honeyman.  For directions to the meeting call Arlean at 504-289-7647.

The book  is available from Amazon in Kindle and paper back and both the New Orleans and Jefferson Parish Libraries have copies available.  Hope you can all make it.

From the Amazon web site:

“Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. 

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fineis the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . . 

The only way to survive is to open your heart.
