4200 Laclede Ave., #302
Please join the Saint Louis University Library Associates for a Margaret Atwood Book Club Discussion of Cat's Eye, facilitated by Jennifer Buehler!
Disturbing, hilarious, and compassionate, Cat’s Eye is the story of Elaine Risley, a controversial painter who returns to Toronto, the city of her youth, for a retrospective of her art. Engulfed by vivid images of the past, she reminisces about a trio of girls who initiated her into the fierce politics of childhood and its secret world of friendship, longing, and betrayal. Elaine must come to terms with her own identity as a daughter, a lover, an artist, and a woman—but above all she must seek release from her haunting memories.

This discussion is free to Library Associates members, $10 for non-members. RSVP to email@example.com or 314-997-3100.
