Book Café –Curtis Sittenfeld’s American Wife is the subject of our next book club gathering on Thursday, September 7th at 1:00 pm. Copies are available at Moyer District Library.

In her small Wisconsin hometown, Alice Lindgren learns the virtues of politeness, but through a tragic accident, her identity at seventeen is shattered and alters the trajectory of her life. More than a decade later, when the charismatic son of a powerful Republican family sweeps her off her feet, she is surprised to find herself admitted into a world of privilege. When her husband unexpectedly becomes governor and then president, she discovers she is married to a man she both loves and fundamentally disagrees with. As her husband’s presidency enters its second term, Alice must confront contradictions years in the making and face questions nearly impossible to answer.
