20-Something Book Club

The Syosset Public Library 20-Something Book Club will be meeting on Monday, May 21st at 7PM.  We will be discussing the novel “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” by Jonathan Safran Foer.

“Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history. What he discovers is solace in that most human quality, imagination. Meet Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, pacifist, correspondent with Stephen Hawking and Ringo Starr. He is nine years old. And he is on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. His mission is to find the lock that fits a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11.” (From the Publisher)

This program is open to any 20-something looking for a great book discussion.  No registration is required and the program is free.  Non-Syosset residents are welcome.  Copies of the book are now available at the Readers’ Services Desk on the 2nd floor.  Please call 516-921-7161 x 239 for details.
