Program Description


This month's selection is The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab.

In France 1714, a young woman take a Faustian bargain to live forever until 300 years later she meets a young man in a bookstore who remembers her name.

More: France,1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.

Critics' Circle meets in-person on the third Tuesday of the month (except December) at 6:30 pm for a discussion of new and classic titles. New readers are always welcome. This book discussion is led by Margaret Eustace.
