Friday Book Group: “Less”

Decorah Public Library staff are hosting eight book discussions in July. 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 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 Friday Book Group will hold a hybrid meeting Fri. July 15 at 2:00 p.m. to discuss Andrew Sean Greer’s “Less.” In-person attendees will meet in the lower-level public meeting room at the library and digital attendees will join via Zoom. Arthur Less is a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: his boyfriend of the past nine years is now engaged to someone else. He can’t say yes—it would all be too awkward—and he can’t say no—it would look like defeat. But on his desk are a series of literary invitations he’s received from around the world. Arthur arranges to skip town by accepting them all, and thus begins a fantasia that will take him to Mexico, Italy, Germany, Morocco, India, and Japan, and put thousands of miles between him and the problems he refuses to face. What could possibly go wrong?
