SummaryJoin us for a book group at the Magnolia Branch. Everyone is welcome. This month’s title is Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan.
Book DescriptionAnna Kerrigan, nearly twelve years old, accompanies her father to the house of Dexter Styles, a man who, she gleans, is crucial to the survival of her father and her family. Years later, her father has disappeared and the country is at war. Anna works at the Brooklyn Naval Yard, where women are allowed to hold jobs that had always belonged to men. She becomes the first female diver, repairing the ships that will help America win the war. At a nightclub, she chances to meet Dexter Styles again, and she begins to understand the complexity of her father's life, and the reasons he might have vanished.
