Happy Hour Book Group: “The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot”
Decorah Public Library staff are hosting nine book discussions in June. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email email@example.com to be added to any of the groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.
The Happy Hour Book Group will hold a hybrid meeting Wed. June 8 at 5:15 p.m. to discuss Marianne Cronin’s “The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot.” In-person attendees will meet in the lower-level public meeting room at the library and digital attendees will join via Zoom. Life is short. No one knows that better than seventeen-year-old Lenni living on the terminal ward. Dodging doctor’s orders, she joins an art class where she bumps into fellow patient Margot, a rebel-hearted eighty-three-year-old from the next ward. Their bond is instant as they realize that together they have lived an astonishing one hundred years. To celebrate their shared century, they decide to paint their life stories: of growing old and staying young, of giving joy, of receiving kindness, of losing love, and of finding the person who is everything.
