Titles & Tea Book Discussion

Tuesday, March 22, 10:30am

Shotgun Lovesongs by Nikolas Butler, set in fictional Little Wing, Wisconsin, examines our hometowns and what we find so attractive and repressive about them. Five high school friends narrate the story, telling of how their lives and friendships have evolved from their high school days.  Henry and Beth settle down on the farm and raise two kids; Ronny wrestles with a disability gained in a rodeo accident; Kip returns to town a successful investor, and Lee Sutton becomes a famous rock star.  As time goes on, secrets from the past are revealed that would alter the friendships forever.  Forgiveness comes hard, but friendships are restored and new memories gained due to a drive by shooting and, only in the heartland, an oversized jar of pickled eggs.
