The Cottage Book Club:Milkman

The Cottage Book Club of “mostly mature” adult (when we have to be) women (although not necessarily required) welcomes everyone, whether or not they have read the book. We’re friendly, of all ages, love to laugh and sometimes cry. We talk strictly about the book, and afterwards, a little about the author. Karen Langs is the facilitator and begins discussion with a general question. “One comment at a time, please."

The group meets the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 10:00 a.m. for an hour, more or less. The Cottage Book Club meets year round and is open to anyone who wishes to join for a day or a season.

“[Milkman] seeth[es] with black humor and adolescent anger at the adult world and its brutal absurdities. . . . For a novel about life under multifarious forms of totalitarian control―political, gendered, sectarian, communal―Milkman can be charmingly wry.”―The New Yorker

“Brutally intelligent. . . . At its core, Milkman is [a] wildly good and true novel of how living in fear limits people.”―NPR.org

Milkman vibrates with the anxieties of our own era, from terrorism to sexual harassment to the blinding divisions that make reconciliation feel impossible. . . . It’s as though the intense pressure of this place has compressed the elements of comedy and horror to produce some new alloy.”The Washington Post

Milkman is a strange animal; it asks a lot, but gives something back, too: the electric jolt of a voice that feels utterly, sensationally new.”Entertainment Weekly
