Join Jessica Strutz on Monday, July 8 at 6:30 in the Lawson McGhee Library meeting room for a discussion of A Ladder to the Sky by John Boyne.
What’s an aspiring writer to do when he lacks imagination and original ideas? Why, steal them, of course! Handsome and charming Maurice Swift longs for fame and fortune and is willing to stop at nothing to achieve eminence. Spanning decades, this irresistible novel follows Swift as he lies and manipulates in his cold-blooded climb to the top of the literary world.
