Ten copies of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman—the Library Committee’s selection for the Summer One Church One Read book—are available for checkout in the OSL Library.
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
Everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly man who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kind of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. It is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.
Stop by the Library to check out or reserve a copy of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, then join in the discussion on September 23 at 10:00 a.m., in the Conference Room.
