This month we will be reading and discussing Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine written by Gail Honeyman. Eleanor Oliphant struggles with appropriate social skills, tends to say exactly what she's thinking, and carefully avoids unnecessary human contact. However, everything changes once she meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygenic IT guy from her office. When Eleanor and Raymond save Sammy, an elderly woman who has fallen, the three rescue each other from the lives of isolation that they have been living. We will discuss this book on Monday, November 26 at 6:30pm and Wednesday, November 28 at 1:30pm. If you cannot make it in person, please use the online blog at kplbookclub.blogspot.com to post your thoughts and comments on the book. Everyone is welcome!
