"What's New?" Book Discussion:The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. In Person and on Zoom @5 PM!

The "What's New"? Book Discussion Group discusses popular releases each month. We will be discussing"The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" by Taylor Jenkins Reid at 5pm in the Garden Room and Live on Zoom.

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself... Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. Summoned to Evelyn's Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn's life unfolds, revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love, Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn's story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique's own in tragic and irreversible ways."-- Provided by publisher.
