The Larkspur Book Club Pioneers discuss "The Children's Book" by A.S. Byatt


The Larkspur Book Club Pioneers at Diesel A Bookstore in LarkspurThe Larkspur Book Club Pioneers meet to discuss The Children's Book by A. S. Byatt on Wednesday, August 30th at 6:30pm.

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!

When children's book author Olive Wellwood's oldest son discovers a runaway named Philip sketching in the basement of a museum, she takes him into the storybook world of her family and friends. The joyful bacchanals Olive hosts at her rambling country house--and the separate, private books she writes for each of her seven children--conceal more treachery and darkness than Philip has ever imagined. The Wellwoods' personal struggles and hidden desires unravel against a breathtaking backdrop of the cliff-lined shores of England to Paris, Munich, and the trenches of the Somme, as the Edwardian period dissolves into World War I and Europe's golden era comes to an end.
