How It All Began by Penelope Lively

Tuesday • September 2 • 1pm

Bellevue Store

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

An elderly woman is mugged. An errant cell phone message reveals an affair. A too-good-to-be-true business relationship is born. As one moment leads to another, a single event unfolds to derail seven other lives, sending each character's story off in new directions and permanently bending the arc of their futures without them even realizing it. Through a richly conceived and colorful cast of characters, Penelope Lively's How It All Began explores the powerful role of chance in people's lives and deftly illustrates how our paths can be altered irrevocably by someone we never even meet.

Book club members save 20% when you purchase this title at our Bellevue store.
