This is a lucky 13

WOODBRIDGE - Registration is available for a daytime Book Discussion to be held at noon July 29 at the Woodbridge Town Library.
The discussion will be led by Reference Librarian Fran Sauer, and the topic will be "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield, library organizers said.

Participants are asked to bring lunch, drinks and dessert will be provided.
In the book, enigmatic and renowned writer Vida Winter, now old and ailing, summons biographer Margaret Lea to her house in order to finally reveal the truth about her violent and tragic secret past. Margaret is enthralled by the story of the peculiar Angelfield family: sadistic Charlie, strange but beautiful Isabelle and her wild, unpredictable twin daughters, Adeline and Emmeline.

During the telling of the story, Margaret is swept up by the gothic atmosphere of Vida Winter’s past, and haunted by the ghosts of Miss Winter and Margaret’s own past. Margaret must decide how much of the story is truth and how much fiction.

The program is free and all are welcome to join. Registration is requested. Copies of the book will be provided to registered participants. To register, or for more information, visit the Circulation Desk, call 389-3433, or e-mail pvalsecchi@ci.woodbridge.ct.us.
