Library Reads - The Story of Arthur Truluv

Join us for a discussion of the Library Reads recommended book, The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg. From goodreads.com: "A beautiful, life-affirming novel about a remarkably loving man who creates for himself and others second chances at happiness. Arthur, a widow, meets Maddy, a troubled teenage girl who is avoiding school by hiding out at the cemetery, where Arthur goes every day for lunch to have imaginary conversations with his late wife, and think about the lives of others. The two strike up a friendship that draws them out of isolation. Maddy gives Arthur the name Truluv, for his loving and positive responses to every outrageous thing she says or does. With Arthur’s nosy neighbor Lucille, they create a loving and unconventional family, proving that life’s most precious moments are sweeter when shared." Please either have read the book or listened to the audiobook before the meeting. Register at the library or by calling the library at (717) 732-4274.
