      A Novel Idea: Virtual Book Club - Bowlaway, Howell Township Branch, Monmouth County Library System

      Bowlaway by Elizabeth McCracken

      From the day she is discovered unconscious in a New England cemetery at the turn of the twentieth century - with nothing but a bowling ball, a candlepin, and fifteen pounds of gold on her person - Bertha Truitt is an enigma to everyone in Salford, Massachusetts. She has no past to speak of, or at least none she is willing to reveal, and her mysterious origin scandalizes and intrigues the townspeople. But Bertha is plucky, tenacious, and entrepreneurial, and the bowling alley she opens quickly becomes Salford's most defining landmark - with Bertha its most notable resident. Bowlaway is both a stunning feat of language and a brilliant unraveling of a family's myths and secrets, its passions and betrayals, as well as the ties that bind and the rifts that divide.

      Moderated by Rebecca Gokberk.
