SRC Book Club: The Astonishing Life of August March

Engage in a Summer Reading Club discussion about Aaron Jackson's The Astonishing Life of August March!

"In this enchanting first novel, an irrepressibly optimistic oddball orphan is thrust into the wilds of postwar New York City after an extraordinary childhood in a theater—Candide by way of John Irving, with a hint of Charles Dickens."
