Gig Harbor Adult Fiction Book Group - Outdoor Edition

Join your local librarians and your neighbors for a book discussion outside at the library. This month we'll be discussing "The Ministry of the Utmost Happiness" by Arundhati Roy.

We're going to meet outside at the Gig Harbor Pierce County Library in person. This month we'll be discussing "The Ministry of the Utmost Happiness" by Arundhati Roy

BOOK DESCRIPTION

A provocative love story meanders through a spectrum of powerful emotions experienced by diverse protagonists, including a grieving father who writes a letter profiling the people who came to his 5-year-old daughter's funeral and two longtime friends at a guest house who sleep wrapped around each other like newlyweds.

In the event of rain, we'll move undercover in the walkway.  In the event of inclement weather (excessive heat, smoke, etc. the event will be canceled).
