UH Book Club: The Nest

April 6, 2017, 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Spielberg Chapel

Join us for a discussion of the book The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney. The Plumb family’s dysfunction stands out even among the most troubled families. After years of simmering tension, siblings Melody, Beatrice and Jack gather to confront older brother, Leo as he is released from rehab. Months earlier, Leo endangered the Plumb’s joint trust fund, “The Nest,” after a drunk driving accident. The family is counting on the mid-life supplement, which has soared in value, to solve a number of self-inflicted problems. The group is brought together like never before as Leo tries to rescue his siblings and their loved ones. This story is about the power of family, the way we depend on one another and the ties we share with those we love.

You can join us for just one session if you like a particular book or come to all of the sessions. There is no long-term commitment necessary. So that we know how many people to expect, RSVP to 314-434-3404
