Book Discussion Group

Location: Steinway
Registration: Not required

Imagine a contemporary version of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” in which an egotistical scientist’s creation is not a hideous-looking monster but a well-mannered teenage girl who quotes Shakespeare, listens to Tom Petty and uses Facebook and YouTube. This is the high-concept premise of this month's book selection, Laurence Gonzales’s “Lucy.”
