Words Around the World Book Club to Discuss "A Gesture Life" at the Scarsdale Library

Date: Sat. 19 Aug, 2017 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour

The monthly book club that discusses books with the theme "Words Around the World" will meet on Saturday, August 19, at 11 a.m. Led by Wendy Archer, the library's Adult Services Manager, the group will discuss "A Gesture Life" by The New York Times best-selling author Chang-rae Lee.

"A Gesture Life" is the story of a Japanese man of Korean birth who epitomizes the decorous values of his New York suburban town. As the novel unfolds, his life begins to unravel as we learn the mystery that shaped the core of his being: his terrible, forbidden love for a young Korean Comfort Woman when he served as a medic in the Japanese army during World War II.

To register for the session and reserve a copy of the book go to the library website, scarsdalelibrary.org, or call the Reference Desk at 914-722-1302.
