TUESDAY AFTERNOON BOOK CLUB
Where were you in the summer of 1969? Do you remember the moon landing, Woodstock, the Vietnam War or Chappaquiddick? As Book Club members recalled where they were that summer, they read Elin Hilderbrand’s novel “Summer of ‘69”. Hilderbrand writes an intriguing novel about the Levin family who always spends their summers at their grandmother’s historic home on Nantucket Island, along the Atlantic Ocean. They experience the events of the summer of ‘69 in a variety of ways. Blair, the oldest, is married and pregnant; Kirby is the flower child of the decade; Tiger is fighting the war in Vietnam; and Jessie, the youngest at 13, is dealing with all the trials of adolescence. As the summer heats up, in addition to the national events, the family also deals with dramatic incidents of their own. The Tuesday Afternoon Book Club enjoyed the book and remembrances of their own lives in 1969. They all agreed Hilderbrand wrote a great story.
