In Manhattan Beach: A Novel, longlisted for the National Book Award, Anna Kerrigan aspires to be the first woman Navy Yard diver in 1940's wartime Brooklyn. In this delicious concoction, author Jennifer Egan does a 180 degree turn from the experimental stylings of her Pulitzer Winner, A Visit from the Goon Squad, and writes an American Noir classic peopled with underworld characters, ex-burlesque dancers, boys on leave, and women acing those "men's jobs" in the work place.
This group is only open to WNBA members, and is moderated by Jill Wisoff. Food and beverages are available for purchase.
