Book Group

Join Adele Robins as she discussed this month's selection "Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine," by Gail Honeyman.  "Meet Eleanor Oliphant:  she struggles with social skills and says exactly what she's thinking.  That, combined with her unusual appearance means that Eleanor has become a creature of habit and a loner.  But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy.  It is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own."  All are welcome.
