Join us virtually to discuss the 1973 classic "The Princess Bride" by William Goldman.  

About the book: 

Anyone who lived through the 1980s may find it impossible--inconceivable, even--to equate The Princess Bride with anything other than the sweet, celluloid romance of Westley and Buttercup, but the film is only a fraction of the ingenious storytelling you'll find in these pages. Rich in character and satire, the novel is set in 1941 and framed cleverly as an "abridged" retelling of a centuries-old tale set in the fabled country of Florin that's home to "Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions."

A limited number of physical copies of the selected title are available at the Belt Branch for check out. This selection is also available digitally on the library's Overdrive and Hoopla apps. 

This program is for all ages.  Discussion will be held virtually via Zoom. Advance registration required- meeting details will be e-mailed the day before the program.
