2:30 PM, Eureka Library's Friday Afternoon Book Group, 'The Lido' by Libby Page (Zoom)
Friday, September 9, 2022
The Lido (also published under the title 'Mornings with Rosemary') is a lively novel of female friendship, longtime marriage, beginnings and endings, change, hope, and community. Set in Brixton, a working-class district of London headed for gentrification, the story revolves around the Lido, a local swimming pool slated to be demolished. Rosemary is in her 80's, and comes to know Kate when the young reporter is assigned to write a story on the closing of the pool. A real friendship is formed as the two come to know one another in an immersive story the Washington Post calls 'Charming ... an unusually poignant tale of married love'.
