Main Library Book Discussion: "Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk" by Kathleen Rooney

Monday, April 15, 2019

11:45 am-1:00 pm


Rooney’s lively, fictionalized version of Margaret Fishback--poet and writer of clever, innovative ad copy--offers plenty of charm and occasional poignance. A smart, stylish, independent young woman, she comes to Manhattan in 1926 and lands a job at Macy’s, where she turns out witty rhymes that promote the department store. Intercut with the narrative of Lillian’s life is the more fanciful story of her adventures on New Year’s Eve 1984 at age 85. 

Fiction, 284pp.
