Book Discussion "Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse"
The Friday Book Group will discuss Faith Sullivan’s “Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse.” The meeting will be held on the 2nd floor of the library.
Nell Stillman’s road is not easy. When her husband dies soon after they move to Harvester, Minnesota, Nell is alone and penniless yet responsible for her baby boy, Hillyard. Nell finds strength in lasting friendships and in the rich inner life awakened by the novels she loves. She falls in love with John Flynn, a charming congressman who becomes a father figure for Hillyard. She teaches at the local school and volunteers at the public library, where she meets Stella Wheeler and her charismatic daughter Sally. She becomes a friend and confidant to many of the girls in town. And no matter how difficult her day, Nell ends each evening with a beloved book. “Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse” celebrates the strength and resourcefulness of independent women, the importance of community, and the transformative power of reading.
