The Seniors Book Club will meet in the 2nd floor “Training Room” on Wednesday, October 12 at 2 pm. Our pick this month is The Prison Book Club, a memoir by Ann Walmsley.
About the book:
But she signed on, and for eighteen months went to a remote building at Collins Bay Institution, meeting a group of heavily tattooed book club members without the presence of guards or security cameras. There was no wine and cheese, no plush furnishings. But a book club on the inside proved to be a place to share ideas and regain a sense of humanity.
From The Grapes of Wrath to The Cellist of Sarajevo, Outliers to Infidel, the book discussions became a springboard for frank conversations about loss, anger, redemption, and loneliness. The books changed the men and the men changed Walmsley. (Publisher)
