Join us for a reading group discussion of "Let Me Be Frank with You" by Richard Ford!

In his trio of critically acclaimed, bestselling novels "The Sportswriter," "Independence Day," and "The Lay of the Land" Richard Ford illuminated the zeitgeist of an entire generation, through the divinings of his now-famous literary chronicler, Frank Bascombe. In "Let Me Be Frank With You," Bascombe returns to narrate four deftly linked stories, having thrived seemingly if not utterly in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
