October Book Discussion
We Are Water by Wally Lamb
The Kilbourn Public Library Book Club is reading We Are Water by New York Times bestselling author Wally Lamb for the October selection. We Are Water is an intricate and layered portrait of marriage, family, and the inexorable need for understanding and connection.
In middle age, Annie Oh--wife, mother, and outsider artist--has shaken her family to its core. After twenty-seven years of marriage and three children, Annie has fallen in love with Viveca, the wealthy, cultured, confident Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her professional success. Annie and Viveca plan to wed in the Oh family's hometown of Three Rivers, Connecticut, where gay marriage has recently been legalized. But the impending wedding provokes some very mixed reactions and opens a Pandora's box of toxic secrets--dark and painful truths that have festered below the surface of the Ohs' lives.
