Book Club on Tuesday Oct.8th(second Tuesday this month), Mother of Invention by Pat Taub the author will be attending
“She insists that her daughter call her Mother, not Mom, because “it sounds more dignified,” yet she also confides searing personal secrets to Pati. There is one secret, however, that Pati does not know. Her mother’s death sets the author on a journey of discovery that she recounts with striking candor and droll humor. Taub begins to wonder if the narcissistic Ice Queen she long ago cast in “that scratchy old movie about The Woman Who Ruined My Life” might be “a figment of my own dysfunction.” The mysteries she unravels about her mother, and herself, will change her life forever.”
