First Tuesday Book Club, August 4

For August, we're reading Le Divorce by Diane Johnson. 

Le Divorce recounts the adventures of two sisters from California who make a modern pilgrimage to the City of Light. Pregnant and abandoned by her French husband, Roxeanne Walker de Persand turns to her younger sister, Isabel, for support, while the powerful Persand family exerts subtle but firm control over her decision whether or not to divorce. Complicating matters is the disposition of a family heirloom, a painting in Roxy's possession that is suddenly discovered to be worth millions. In the midst of a variety of schemes, the stakes are suddenly raised by a crime of passion, disrupting everyone's motives and plans.

We will be meeting in the Visalia Branch Blue Room to discuss this book on August 4 from 6:30pm - 7:45pm.
