Join our Monday group to discuss Amor Towles’ latest novel, The Lincoln Highway. All adults are welcome to join our discussions. This group is still meeting on Zoom. If in-person meeting becomes an option, you can be notified by contacting Beth Van Ness at the library. You must use the registration link if you are not on the mailing list for the group. The Zoom link will go out a day or two before the meeting. Copies of the book are available at our circulation desk. We try to get our selections in all available formats, but you can contact Beth Van Ness if you have any particular need or if you have questions about the group.
“Welcome to the enormous pleasure that is The Lincoln Highway, a big book of camaraderie and adventure in which the miles fly by and the pages turn fast. Set over the course of ten riveting days, the story of these four boys unfolds, refolds, tears, and is taped back together. When you aren’t actually reading the book, you’ll be worrying about the characters, so you might as well stay in your chair and keep reading.” —Ann Patchett
“[A] mischievous, wise and wildly entertaining novel . . . Towles has snipped off a minuscule strand of existence—10 wayward days—and when we look through his lens we see that this brief interstice teems with stories, grand as legends.” —New York Times Book Review
“Hitch onto this delightful tour de force and you’ll be pulled straight through to the end, helpless against the inventive exuberance of Towles’ storytelling . . . ” —NPR
“Gorgeously crafted . . . The novel embraces the contradictions of our character with a skillful hand, guiding the reader forward with ‘a sensation of floating – like one who’s being carried down a wide river on a warm summer day.’” —Washington Post
