Endwright Book Club
May 26 at 3 pm

This month’s discussion will cover She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb. Following the accidental death of her mother, Dolores decides to attend the academically underwhelming Merton College in Pennsylvania. There Dolores is ridiculed for her weight and cultivates a secret obsession with her roommate’s long-distance boyfriend. After her suicide attempt, Dolores is institutionalized for seven years. She begins to work through her issues with the help of her therapist. At her grandmother’s funeral, Dolores is able to reconnect with several friends from her past, who form a surrogate family for her. They encourage her to pursue her dreams, and she enrolls in some college courses while working. One reviewer calls Dolores a heroine to cheer for … a supremely touching journey to adulthood.

This group uses Book Club Kits from MCPL. Each participant has the opportunity to choose the book and lead that month’s discussion. Some participants meet in person, others on Zoom. To join, contact Na’Kia at njones@area10agency.org or 812-876-3383 x 582.
