Join us for cozy evenings with Lori Robinson, knitting and discussing whatever book assigned. There will be tea, the clacking of needles, and silence when troublesome parts of patterns interrupt conversation. This evening on February 6 we are reading Clock Dance by Anne Tyler. All levels of knitters are welcome!
In Clock Dance Willa Drake has had three opportunities to start her life over: in 1967, as a schoolgirl whose mother has suddenly disappeared; in 1977, when considering a marriage proposal; and in 1997, as a young widow trying to hold her family together. So she is surprised when in 2017 she is given one last chance to change everything, after receiving a startling phone call from a stranger. Without fully understanding why, she flies across the country to Baltimore to help a young woman she's never met. This impulsive decision, maybe the first one she’s consciously made in her life, will lead Willa into uncharted territory—surrounded by eccentric neighbors who treat each other like family, she finds solace and fulfillment in unexpected places. A bewitching novel of hope and transformation, Clock Dance gives us Anne Tyler at the height of her powers.
