11TH ANNUAL BOOK CLUB BRUNCH
As Close to Us as Breathing
Ticket Price: $40 (book and a seated brunch are included with the ticket)
“The summer of 1948 my brother Davy was killed in an accident,” Molly tells us in her first sentence. Twelve years old at the time, she looks back from the vantage point of 1999 to consider the fraught family dynamic that contributed to the accident during her family’s annual summer trip to Connecticut on “Bagel Beach.” Elizabeth Poliner is a masterful storyteller, a brilliant observer of human nature. She has created an unforgettable meditation on grief, guilt and the boundaries of identity and love.
