The Boys from Eighth and Carpenter by Tom Mendicino – SAGE Book Discussion Group
June 10, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The SAGE Book Discussion Group will meet on June 10, 2017 at the Stonewall Library, 1300 E. Sunrise Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale, from 11 AM to noon. Our June 10, 2017 selection is a character driven novel – The Boys from Eighth and Carpenter by Tom Mendicino. Set in an Italian immigrant neighborhood in South Philadelphia, it examines familial ties as two young brothers are bound together by a vow to their dying mother that they will always look out for each other. The vow is a pivotal event fully put to the test some forty years later when one brother commits an unthinkable act. A story of brotherhood, and the keeping of promises, the book is also a suspenseful and well-paced crime novel. Please consider joining us – all are welcome and no reservation is required. For additional information please contact Philip (443) 614-7135 or Alan (561) 385-8260.
