November Book: The Cradle by Patrick Somerville

The November book for the Gapers Block Book Club is The Cradle by Patrick Somerville. This compelling first novel begins with the story of Marissa Bishop, who is pregnant with her first child. She sends her husband, Matt, on a mission to reclaim an antique cradle from the mother who abandoned Marissa years ago. Along the way, Matt will embark on his own journey of self-discovery.

Our next meeting is Monday, November 8, at The Book Cellar in Lincoln Square. The discussion begins at 7:30pm, and new members are always welcome. This is our last book club meeting for 2010, and the very last monthly book club meeting in its current incarnation. Stay tuned to this blog for announcements about new book club events in 2011.
