Join us on November 17th at 6:30 PM to discuss the novel A Line Made by Walking by award-winning Irish novelist Sara Baume.

Struggling to cope with urban life-and life in general-Frankie, a twenty-something artist, retreats to her family’s rural house on “turbine hill,” vacant since her grandmother’s death three years earlier. It is in this space, surrounded by countryside and wild creatures, that she can finally grapple with the chain of events that led her here-her shaky mental health, her difficult time in art school-and maybe, just maybe, regain her footing in art and life.  (from Amazon)
