Virtual Discussion BookWoman BookGroup: Swamplandia
"Absolutely irresistible. . . . A suspenseful, deeply haunted book. . . . A marvel." -- The New York Times
Thirteen-year-old Ava Bigtree has lived her entire life at Swamplandia!, her family’s island home and gator-wrestling theme park in the Florida Everglades. But when illness fells Ava’s mother, the park’s indomitable headliner, the family is plunged into chaos; her father withdraws, her sister falls in love with a spooky character known as the Dredgeman, and her brilliant big brother, Kiwi, defects to a rival park called The World of Darkness.
As Ava sets out on a mission through the magical swamps to save them all, we are drawn into a lush and bravely imagined debut that takes us to the shimmering edge of reality.
We will be hosting virtual book group meetings until things are back to normal. Thank you for continuing to read with us.
We typically meet every 4th Thursday. New members welcome. Join us!
This month we will discuss Swamplandia by Karen Russell. The author herself will be joining us! What a treat!
