Virtual Book ClubAll Adults Here December 2020

Thursday, December 3 at 3 pm

Book: All Adults Here by Emma Straub
“To describe Emma Straub’s novel All Adults Here without using the word ‘charming’ is like trying to describe an accordion without using your hands. But winsome and big-hearted do fine to characterize Ms. Straub’s loosely knit, multigenerational fourth novel …Tight, flinty Astrid…seems like close kin to Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge.” —The Wall Street Journal

Ellyn received her Ph.D. from NYU in 1997, with a focus on American literature from a cultural studies perspective. At the Waukesha campus, she teaches a variety of composition and literature courses, including ones on ethnic literature, children’s literature, death, and popular culture.
