Please note: This month Book Club will be held OUTSIDE on the lawn in front of the library on TUESDAY (not the usual Wednesday). Registration is still required due to social distancing space considerations. Thank you! Bring your own chair if able, and sign up for the book club email newsletter for last minute updates if the weather does not cooperate!
Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper
I've gone. I've never seen the water, so I've gone there. I will try to remember to come back. Etta's greatest unfulfilled wish, living in the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan, is to see the sea. And so, at the age of eighty-two she gets up very early one morning, takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 2,000 miles to water. Meanwhile her husband Otto waits patiently at home, left only with his memories. Their neighbour Russell remembers too, but differently - and he still loves Etta as much as he did more than fifty years ago, before she married Otto.
