Bestseller Book Club: Manhattan Beach

Bestseller Book Club: Manhattan Beach

Saturday, December 30

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Have you ever thought about joining a book club? It’s a fun way to get connected, make new friends, and read more books! In the Bestseller Book Club, we’ll be reading and discussing newly released, highly rated books from a wide variety of genres. To register, click here.

This month we’re reading Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan. Synopsis: With Manhattan Beach, Jennifer Egan—who dazzled readers with her Pulitzer Prize-winning, A Visit from the Goon Squad—spins a classic historical novel. Classic in the sense that it’s virtually impossible to put down. Classic in its sepia toned portrait of New York: set on the Brooklyn docks during World War II, when mobsters ruled, the war loomed, and a young girl dove her way into becoming the first female diver on the squad. Classic in its quintessentially satisfying characters: crooked gangsters, disappearing fathers, gritty sailors and an intrepid young woman equally at home in a 200 pound diving suit and a green silk dress who unites them all. Classic in its revelation of the dangerous, altruistic and nefarious choices people make to support their family, their country and themselves. Manhattan Beach is classic in all of its American glory.
