Pilgrim Women's Book Club

Join us for our October Book Club meeting to discuss "Turner House" by Angela Flournoy

Fluornoy’s debut novel is a complex family tale that follows how the thirteen Turner siblings must grapple with what to do with the house on Yarrow Street where they grew up after their mother is too old to live alone any longer. Thematically, the book deals broadly with place, both the importance of the Turner family home, and the history that resides there, and also the city of Detroit. Fluornoy also addresses the legacy of addiction within and between generations of a family, and how families understand mental health and addiction more generally.

Flournoy is a very good story teller who weaves together the experiences of the different generations into a complete fabric that paints an interesting picture of this family's journey. Please join us for a thought-provoking discussion and warm fellowship.
