Pearl Cleage's book next up for Elm Street Book Group

NEW HAVEN - The Elm Street Book Group will discuss Pearl Cleage's "What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day" at 6 p.m. Nov. 17.

In the book, "After more than a decade of deluxe living, Ava has come home, her fabulous career and power plans smashed to bits on one dark truth... she has tested positive for HIV," library officials said in a statement.

"Ava decides to return to her hometown to spend a quiet summer with her widowed sister, Joyce, before moving on to finish her life in San Francisco, the most HIV-friendly place she can imagine. But what she thinks is the end is only the beginning—there's just too much going on in her hometown to ignore," the statement said.

The Elm Street Book Group meets every third Wednesday at New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St.

New readers are always welcome, and Blue State Coffee provides complimentary coffee for those who register to attend: or call the library at 203-946-8835.
