Library Adult -- Lunchtime Book Discussion Group

Monday, August 19, 2019

Bring a sack lunch and join us for a discussion of "The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper" by Phaedra Patrick. Pick up your copy of the book at the Artesia Public Library. Sixty-nine-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7:30 a.m., just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden. But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam’s death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam’s possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he’s never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife’s secret life before they met—a journey that leads him to find hope, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places. It is a joyous celebration of life’s infinite possibilities.
