Nothing Daunted Women's Book Discussion Group

”June 20, 2019”
7:00 pm” – “8:30 pm

Join us every third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Literature Room for coffee, cookies, and stimulating discussions on new and classic works of fictions and non-fiction.

This month’s featured book is Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks:

A small-town newspaper columnist with old-fashioned views of the modern world. A World War II veteran grappling with his emotional and physical scars. A second-rate actor plunged into sudden stardom and a whirlwind press junket. Four friends traveling to the moon in a rocketship built in the backyard. These are just some of the stories that Tom Hanks captures in his first work of fiction: a collection of shorts that explore–with great affection, humor, and insight–the human condition in all its foibles. The stories are linked by one thing: in each of them, a typewriter plays a part, sometimes minor, sometimes central.
To many, typewriters represent a level of craftsmanship, beauty, and individuality that is harder and harder to find in the modern world. In these stories, Hanks gracefully reaches that typewriter-worthy level. By turns whimsical, witty, and moving, Uncommon Type establishes him as a welcome and wonderful new voice in contemporary fiction.
