A Good American by Alex George
An uplifting novel about the families we create and the places we call home.
It is 1904. When Frederick and Jette must flee her disapproving mother, where better to go than America, the land of the new? Originally set to board a boat to New York, at the last minute, they take one destined for New Orleans instead ("What's the difference? They're both new"), and later find themselves, more by chance than by design, in the small town of Beatrice, Missouri. Not speaking a word of English, they embark on their new life together.
The PRC Book Group, "One Book, One People", at the People's Resource Center brings volunteers, staff, and clients together to discuss some of the best books written about the various countries and cultures of the people we serve, and to get to know one another better. We even get to taste some of the great foods from around the world!!
2nd Wednesdays of the month at lunch (12 - 1:30) in the Megan Bradshaw Learning Center, 201 S. Naperville Road, Wheaton (on the second floor of our building).
Borrow or buy your own book. Bring your own lunch. Rice and beans will be served.
