Event Details

Shepaug English Language Arts Teacher, Christine Shugrue will lead a discussion on the New York Times bestseller The Dutch House by Anne Patchett.

Join us as Christine explores one of Ann Patchett’s most powerful novels to date. The Dutch House is a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go. The Dutch House is the story of a paradise lost, a tour de force that digs deeply into questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, of how we want to see ourselves and of who we really are.

“Patchett’s prose is confident, unfussy and unadorned.” (New York Times)

“As always, the author draws us close to her protagonists swiftly and gracefully.” (Wall Street Journal)

Copies of the book available at the Circulation desk.
