Book Club at West Laurel Hill Cemetery on Thursday, August 26, 2021 at 6:00 pm
The August Boneyard Bookworm selection is Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel.
“Alison Bechdel’s groundbreaking, a bestselling graphic memoir that charts her fraught relationship with her late father.
Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the “Fun Home.” It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was also gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve.
In her hands, personal history becomes a work of amazing subtlety and power, written with controlled force and enlivened with humor, rich literary allusion, and heartbreaking detail.”
This meeting will take place on Thursday, August 26, 2021, at 6:00 pm, at West Laurel Hill Cemetery in the atrium of the funeral home. Masks are required for anyone not vaccinated and no food or drink will be served.
